The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office is seeking public comments on proposed supplementary safety rules for the Killpecker Sand Dunes Recreation Site 23 miles northeast of Rock Springs, Wyoming.
The proposed supplementary rules would increase safety and maintain a high quality and unique experience for visitors to the Killpecker Sand Dunes by allowing the BLM to more effectively manage the area. The rules would require safety flags on all vehicles for better visibility in the 10,500-acre off-highway vehicle (OHV) open area, prohibit glass containers to decrease hazards in the OHV recreation area and limit speeds to 15 miles per hour or less within 500 feet of access roads to reduce traffic accidents.
More information on the Killpecker Sand Dunes Recreation Site is available at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/field_offices/Rock_Springs/rec/dunes.html.
More information on the proposed rules and the 2013 Killpecker Sand Dunes Recreation Site Facility Improvement Environmental Assessment are available at www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/documents/rsfo/Killpecker.html.

Written substantive comments will be accepted until Feb. 9, 2015 and may be emailed to email@example.com with "Supplemental Rules" in the subject line; faxed to 307-352-0329; or mailed or delivered to the BLM Rock Springs Field Office, Attn: Supplemental Rules, 280 Highway 191 N., Rock Springs, WY 82901.
