USBLM to lead environmental review of proposed road; would cross part of Gates of the Arctic NP&Pres
The Bureau of Land Management is taking the lead on an environmental review of the state proposed Ambler Road. The controversial project would punch an industrial access road from the Dalton Highway west to the Ambler Mining district. The proposed 211-mile road already faces substantial opposition from many area residents.
BLM Central Yukon Field Office manager Tim Lamar said his agency is charged with looking at a full range of issues in drafting an environmental impact statement.
