Empty log trucks will return via a northbound route along Jerry Creek Road and westbound on Jimmie New Road.
The public is advised to use caution when traveling these roads and to watch for heavy equipment. Short delays may also be expected.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2014, the BLM generated $5.2 billion in receipts from public lands.
