BLM seeks public comment on proposed Fremont Lake Road improvements
Informational Open House planned January 15th
by Bureau of Land Management
December 14, 2012
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO) is seeking public comment on a proposed Fremont Lake Road/County Road 23-154 improvement project and will hold an informational open house on Tuesday, Jan. 15, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 1625 W. Pine in Pinedale, Wyoming.
The 1.5 miles of proposed road improvements would lead up to the Lakeside Lodge turnoff and improve public safety and snow removal by widening shoulders, improving drainage, replacing asphalt and providing flat areas for snow catchers.
The material needed for improving existing steep shoulders to 6:1 slopes would come from expanding existing borrow ditches along the road. In most areas, these improvements would take place within the existing 100-foot wide right-of-way; however, 11 temporary work areas totaling 6.13 acres would be needed outside the existing right-of-way.
If permitted, the project would begin in the summer of 2013 and be completed by fall of 2013.

The BLM is seeking constructive public comments to help identify potential issues, concerns, ideas and alternatives to be addressed in the EA.
