It's probably too late to stop the project now, best hope is to mitigate
some of it's negative effects, traffic vs. wildlife, road kill, increased
poaching, noise and dust from industry. The project has had
opposition from hunters and wilderness advocates and SUWA. Grand County
wasn't wild about the idea. And of course the BLM stamped it up with out
finishing it's home work.
Actually, the paving project ends at the Grand county line, as Grand Co.
doesn't see enough financial benefit to justify the cost of paving their
portion. You have to navigate some pretty rough road to get to I 70.
