The proposed road would be 2,500 feet long and would be either 60 feet or 30 feet wide, depending on whether the Proposed Action or an alternative called “Option B” is selected. The proposal consists of two portions, one comprising approximately 1,200 feet of an existing access road and the other involving approximately 1,300 feet of an existing two-track road. If authorized, construction of the road would result in temporary new disturbance of either 2.69 or 1.78 acres, depending on the width involved.
