BLM meeting, February 2-4


Wyoming Resource Advisory Council Meeting Set for February

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Wyoming Resource Advisory Council (RAC) will meet Feb. 2-4, in Laramie, Wyoming.

The meeting is open to the public and will take place at the Holiday Inn, 204 S. 30th St., Laramie, beginning at 1 p.m., Monday, Feb. 2, and concluding by noon, Wednesday, Feb. 4.

Planned agenda topics include discussions on regional mitigation, reclamation, implementation of Greater Sage-Grouse plans and follow-up to previous RAC meetings.

On Tuesday, Feb. 3, the meeting will include a working lunch and dinner. The public may attend the meeting, but food will not be provided.

The public comment period will start at 8 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 4. The public may also submit written comments to the RAC by emailing or by submitting them at the meeting location to the RAC coordinator. Depending on the number of persons wishing to comment and time available, the time for individual oral comments may be limited. If there are no members of the public interested in speaking, the meeting will move promptly to the next agenda item.

The purpose of the council is to advise the Secretary of the Interior through the BLM on a variety of issues associated with public land management. For more information contact BLM RAC Coordinator Christian Venhuizen, 307-261-7603, or visit

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.

WYDOT WYO 130 Closed
A portion of WYO 130 over the Snowy Range between Laramie and Saratoga closed for the season due to limited visibility and snow accumulation. WYO 70 over Battle Pass between Encampment and Baggs is now closed also.

Westbound travelers will encounter the closure at the Green Rock Picnic Area near milepost 36, about eight miles above Centennial. For eastbound travel, the closure begins near milepost 48 above Ryan Park.

The high elevation portion of this roadway is closed annually in late autumn when relatively low traffic, combined with increasing snow accumulations, make plowing operations impractical.

WYO 70 over Battle Pass remains open at this time, although typically that stretch of roadway closes within days after WYO 130.

Every year is unique and WYDOT will send an update on WYO 70 when the closure occurs.

Before traveling WYO 70, or any state highways in winter conditions, motorists are urged to visit (and specifically for southeast Wyoming to check the road status.

Travelers may also call 511 within the state and get road condition updates.

Thank you for driving safely. Watch for plows in your travels and have a glorious Wyoming winter!
