Legislators call for approval of permitting for road connecting Sevier and Emery counties

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Congressman Jason Chaffetz (UT-3) have written to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to urge approval along Quitchupah Creek Road in Sevier and Emery counties.

Sevier County Special Service District Number 1 has proposed the upgrade and realignment, but the Army Corps of Engineers has not yet granted permission for the changes. This upgrade and realignment is critical for economic development in central Utah and will not need any federal funding to complete.

In the letter, Hatch and Chaffetz note that because it involves federal lands, a comprehensive review process must be complete.

However, the letter notes that "Both the BLM and the USFS have completed these review processes."

Additionally, the letter states that "The Forest Supervisor for the Fishlake National Forest and the Richfield Field Office Manager for the BLM each issued favorable Records of Decision in 2006, making Forest Service and BLM rights-of-way 100 percent ready for project implementation."
