NPR-A tundra overland travel closes

Petroleum News

The Bureau of Land Managementís Arctic District Office said winter overland tundra travel for the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska closed effective 12:01 a.m., May 3.

The agency said snow and weather conditions in the NPR-A were no longer adequate for winter overland tundra travel.

The state closed the eastern and western coastal areas of state land on the North Slope for off-road tundra travel April 30, and said snow pack deterioration was widespread in coastal areas with large swaths of visible vegetation.

The stateís other two tundra travel areas, the lower and upper foothills, never opened for off-road travel this year.
