Parker Races Temporary Public Land Closures Scheduled

The Parker 250 Desert Race closure is in effect from 2:00 p.m. (MST) on Friday, January 6, 2012, through 6:00 p.m. (MST) on Saturday, January 7, 2012. The Parker 425 Desert Race closure is in effect from 2:00 p.m. (MST) on Friday, February 3, 2012, through 11:59 p.m. (MST) on Saturday, February 4, 2012.

The closures are being done to help ensure public safety and prevent unnecessary environmental degradation during the permitted running of the 2012 Parker 250 and Parker 425 Desert Races.

Areas subject to this closure include all public land; including county maintained roads and highways located within two miles of the designated course.

“As in past years, we will have designated spectator areas so people can enjoy the races,” said BLM Lake Havasu Field Manager Kim Liebhauser. “Post and cable fencing and concrete barriers will be used to designate two spectator areas in Bouse, Arizona. The five-mile long spectator area along Shea Road outside of Parker is above the race course, protected with post and cable fencing along the bluff, and will not require a speed zone.”

Liebhauser added, “The Parker Races are an important tradition to the community and public. We’ve had a perfect spectator safety record for 40 years and we want to keep it that way.”

The race courses and closure areas descriptions, restrictions, and maps of the designated race courses are available at the Bureau of Land Management Lake Havasu Field Office, 2610 Sweetwater Avenue, Lake Havasu City, Arizona, 86406.

For more information contact Michael Dodson, Field Staff Ranger, BLM Lake Havasu Field Office at 928-505-1200.

The BLM manages more land - over 245 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
