FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO CLOSE 100,000 ACRES TO OHV USE IN UTAH

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced the closure of approximately 100,000 acres in the Indian Creek Corridor of San Juan County, Utah. While OHV use will be permitted on existing roads and trails, all “cross-country” OHV activity within the designated area is prohibited. This closure will remain in effect until the BLM completes a review of its existing management plan for OHV use in San Juan County.    

Large-scale public land closures are consequential to SEMA members as they deny access to off-roaders and the equipment that they purchase for off-road use. SEMA has worked with the other land access groups on reasonable land use policies that protect motorized recreation and our nation’s natural wonders. Details: Jason Tolleson at jasont@sema.org.
