Travel Management planning

The Shoshone National Forest began the Travel Management planning process in June 2015. This process will designate a sustainable system of roads, trails, and areas that are open for motor vehicle use with public involvement. As a part of this process, the Shoshone National Forest is following the rules set forward in the 2005 Travel Management Rule.

 

November 2021 Virtual Public Meetings for the final Environmental Assessment for Travel Management:

The Shoshone National Forest conducted online meetings via the Microsoft Teams platform on the travel management project the week of November 1, 2021. Due to unidentified technical difficulties, the recording for the North Zone meeting did not record correctly and is not available for viewing. The recordings for the Wind River Ranger District and the Washakie Ranger District are linked below.

The 30-day public comment period concluded on November 18, 2021. Public comments from both the 2020 draft EA and the 2021 EA are available via the project page here: https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public//ReadingRoom?Project=48573.
