Public may encounter logging activity this fall on BLM lands in Grand County

KREMMLING – The Bureau of Land Management wants the public to be aware they could encounter delays and increased heavy truck traffic in two areas on BLM-administered lands in Grand County this fall due to pine beetle mitigation projects.

The on-going operations are in Game Management Unit 18. One is along Grouse Mountain Road, which is accessed from Grand County Road 21 north of Parshall. The other is along BLM Black Mountain Road No. 2757 off of Grand County Road 2, east of Kremmling.

“We appreciate the public’s patience during these operations,” said Kremmling Field Manager Stephanie Odell. “The beetle-killed trees are being removed to increase public safety along the road, improve forest health and wildlife habitat, and reduce fire danger.”

For more information, contact the BLM Kremmling Field Office, 970-724-3000.
