by Bureau of Land Management
June 15, 2016
The Bureau of Land Management Rock Springs Field Office is finalizing supplementary rules for the Killpecker Sand Dunes Recreation Site 23 miles northeast of Rock Springs, Wyoming.
The final supplementary rules will 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 will 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.
The effective date is 30 days after the publication in the Federal Register.
