Forest Service Seeks Public Comments on Roads
The U.S. Forest Service plans to study the risks and benefits connected with possible changes to the road system in local forests, and they’d like your input.
The organization is examining a road system in the Huron-Manistee National Forests. The goal is to optimize a system providing access for both public and forest management activities while minimizing environmental impact.
More than 3,000 miles of roads are managed by the Forest Service within the Huron-Manistee National Forests. The Service says input from the public helps them to determine the best uses, locations, and potential changes to these roads.
They’re asking for public comments that will help identify priorities for changes to the road system. Those comments are being accepted through February 15.
