    Utah Department of Transportation needs our help
    Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
    The guys and gals at NOHVCC (National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council - bookmark their excellent website now!) sent us a request for help from the Utah Department of Transportation. They have a question they need answered and are hoping that the OHV community can help.
    I have pasted in a copy of their email below; please take a couple of minutes to read over the information.
    Thanks in advance for your involvement,
    Ric Foster
    Public Lands Department Manager

    Utah Department of Transportation needs our help
    Dear NOHVCC Friends,
    The Utah Department of Transportation has a question they need help with. They are planning a new state highway which will interfere with the current parking and access of an OHV area and are working on an engineering solution that will still allow the riders to use and access the area as they have in the past.
    The question they need help with is this:
    When placing a box culvert under a new highway to access an OHV staging area, how large does it need to be to accommodate the various vehicles, campers, toy haulers that typically visit an OHV area and equestrian use?
    Please let us know if you have any standards or recommendations you can share.
    Please reply to trailhead@nohvcc.org.
    Your help is greatly appreciated,
    Russ Ehnes
