BLM to host info session on 9 Mile road
The Bureau of Land Management Price Field Office will host an information meeting to discuss granting a right-of-way to Carbon County for the existing Nine Mile Canyon Road to chip seal the surface. The meeting is scheduled for Feb. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Fairgrounds Event Center.
The project also calls for upgrades such as drainage culverts, ditches and concrete ford crossings. The project would upgrade a total of 36 miles of road. Approximately 11 miles are located on Federal lands and about 25 miles on private and state.
The Nine Mile Canyon Road Improvement Project Area is in northeastern Carbon County and southern Duchesne County. The federal portions of the proposed project begin approximately 16 miles northeast of Wellington.
The BLM is seeking public input on the proposed project. Those wishing to comment should do so by by Feb. 25. Comments may be submitted by fax, email, or letter referencing "Nine Mile Canyon Road Improvement Project."
