Humboldt County obtained Question One grant funding for the project and has an agreement with Great Basin Institute for the trail construction, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2011.
“The citizens of Humboldt County will see the benefits of this community asset for many years to come,” said Humboldt County Commissioner Tom Fransway. “Without Question One state funding, this recreational infrastructure would not have been possible.”
The BLM analyzed the project in an environmental assessment and issued a Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact on June 27. The document can be reviewed online at www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/wfo/blm_information/nepa0.html. Printed copies are available upon request from the BLM Winnemucca District Office.
