Protect Red Cliffs
Help prevent a highway from going through Red Cliffs National Conservation Area in Utah!
Take action to stop a proposed four-lane highway through public lands.
The Bureau of Land Management is accepting public scoping comments on a proposed four-lane highway through Red Cliffs National Conservation Area (NCA) which is critical Mojave desert tortoise habitat. If constructed, the Northern Corridor Highway would set a dangerous national precedent that would make all protected public lands vulnerable to development. Take action today to let the Bureau of Land Management know that a highway has no place in a national conservation area.
Since 2006, local residents and concerned citizens across the country have vocalized their opposition to this highway that would bulldoze through critical habitat for the Mojave desert tortoise and damage Red Cliffs NCA, a protected landscape renowned for its scenic views, recreation, and wildlife. In January 2021, in the final days of the Trump Administration, the Department of the Interior approved the highway right-of-way over viable transportation alternatives that meet community needs without impacting protected public lands.
In November 2023, the Bureau of Land Management announced it would reconsider the project and opened a public comment period for the public to weigh in. We need your voice to keep Red Cliffs roadless and protect vulnerable desert tortoises.
