BLM extends comment period on trail closures near Quartzsite

La Posa Travel Management Plan Comment Period Extended

Yuma, Ariz. - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Yuma Field Office La Posa Travel Management Plan (TMP) comment period has been extended for an extra 30 days. 
“The original closing date for comments is March 7, 2012, however, we have decided to extend the comment period so the public can have sufficient time to review the route designations and make their comments,” said BLM Yuma Field Manager John MacDonald.  “We analyzed approximately 1,700 miles of routes during our route designation process, so it is important for us to give the public the time needed to comment.”
Written comments about the La Posa TMP maps will be accepted until April 5, 2012.  Comments postmarked by this date will be considered in making the final decision.  The comments should be specific to be most effective.  Comments should be mailed to BLM Yuma Field Office, Attention:  Joe Raffaele; 2555 E. Gila Ridge Road; Yuma, Arizona  85365; or through email to

The La Posa Travel Management Area surrounds Quartzsite, Arizona, and encompasses over 380,000 acres of public land in La Paz and Yuma Counties.
