—NOTICE OF GUNNISON COUNTY AND BLM ROAD CLOSURES—
Gunnison County, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the United States Forest Service (USFS) have temporarily closed a number of roads to all motor vehicles to protect Gunnison Sage-grouse during their mating season and to prevent road damage during wet spring conditions. These roads were closed March 15 and will reopen on May 15, 2008. Copies of the closure list and maps are available at Gunnison County Public Works, 811 Rio Grande Avenue; Gunnison County Administration Office, 200 E. Virginia Ave; Colorado Division of Wildlife Office, 300 W. New York; and the Bureau of Land Management/USFS Office, 216 N. Colorado; Gunnison, Colorado. These closures apply to all motor vehicles. Do not park at the closures in a manner that blocks access through the closure gates. For additional information call Gunnison County Public Works at 641-0044; the Gunnison County Sage-grouse Conservation Coordinator at 641-7604; or the BLM at 641-0471. The cooperation of the public is required to successfully implement these road closures. The closures will aid in the preservation of the Gunnison Sage-grouse and may assist in reducing impacts on residents and visitors of Gunnison County from a possible Federal listing of the grouse under provisions of the Endangered Species Act. The public also should be aware of other closures in the Gunnison Basin that have been implemented to protect wildlife during this severe winter: The Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW) has implemented a Temporary Emergency Closure of all Hunting and Wildlife Related Activities, through May 15, 2008.
