Eureka, January 11, 2013 –According toOrleans/Ukonom/Lower Trinity District Ranger Nolan Colegrove, “We are beginning the West Ishi Pishi Travel Analysis Process (TAP), a transportation study of the road system. We are committed to balancing the needs for public access with our responsibility to sustain a productive, diverse and healthy national forest. We invite the public to participate in this process and provide their comments.” The analysis is area includes lands within the Ukonom District, west of the Klamath River.


An information packet is available for anyone interested in the TAP. The package will provide an overview of the process and include a list and map of the West Ishi Pishi road system. If you would like to receive the information package and be placed on the mailing list for this project, please contact Corrine Black, Team Leader, by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone at (707) 441-3593. The packet is also available on the Six Rivers National Forest website at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/srnf/ishi-pishi-tap.


In addition, a Public Meeting will be held on February 12, 2013 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at the Orleans Elementary School, 38016 Highway 96, Orleans, CA. The purpose of the meeting is to share information about the process and answer questions. Information about how to comment on the project and assistance in reading maps will also be provided.


The transportation study will identify roads needed for safe and efficient travel and for the protection, management, and use of the national forest. At the same time, the study is an opportunity to identify roads that are no longer needed. “This study will begin to help us prioritize our limited resources to manage roads used by visitors, while better protecting sources of clean water and a healthier forest, and provide the communities that may be impacted to have a chance to participate in the process.” said Colegrove.


Nearly everyone who uses the area will be affected by possible future road management decisions, making it important to work together today to identify a sustainable road system. Some possible options that may be considered in the transportation study include maintaining individual roads at current standards; adding short segments of existing unauthorized routes which provide access to dispersed recreation sites; changing the level of access from passenger cars to high clearance vehicles; implementing year-long closures; or removing some roads entirely.


“I encourage your involvement in this process to ensure your input is considered as we evaluate the transportation system that would meet public and administrative needs and address resource issues,” said Colegrove.
