SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Purpose and Need for Action

    The Modoc National Forest is creating this document to bolster the 
Modoc National Forest Motorized Travel Management FEIS by correcting 
any errata and by providing supplemental information that was found to 
be missing from the original document. This information is provided in 
response to the Appeal Deciding Officers' decision dated March 11, 2010 
that reversed part of the original decision.

Proposed Action

    The Modoc National Forest proposes to add 331 miles of unauthorized 
routes to the National Forest Transportation System (NFTS) on the Modoc 
National Forest and change the vehicle class on 513 miles of 
Maintenance Level 3 (ML3) roads to allow for mixed use by both highway 
legal and non-highway legal vehicles as originally proposed in the 
Motorized Travel Management FEIS and ROD (November, 2009).

Responsible Official

    Forest Supervisor, Kimberly Anderson, Modoc National Forest.

Nature of Decision To Be Made

    The Responsible Official will decide whether to (1) Implement the 
Proposed Action; (2) take no action.

Preliminary Issues

    This document will supplement the existing Motorized Travel 
Management FEIS (Volume 1, Volume 2, and (ROD) Record of Decision) and 
includes a decision letter signed by Angela Coleman (Appeal Deciding 
Officer) dated March 11, 2011 that reversed part of the decision. All 
of the information in the existing Travel Management EIS will be 
considered when creating the Supplemental Information document 
including, but not limited to, the response to comments and public 
scoping comments.

Scoping Process

    This notice of intent initiates the development of a supplement for 
the Motorized Travel Management FEIS. All interested parties from the 
previous Travel Management FEIS will be notified of the supplement's 
availability when completed.
    Once the document is issued, it is important that reviewers provide 
their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to 
the agency's preparation of this supplemental document. All scoping 
comments from the previous Motorized Travel Management FEIS have 
already been considered and do not need to be resubmitted.

    Dated: September 8, 2011.
Kimberly H. Anderson,
Forest Supervisor.
