USBLM sued to stop road planned through preserve portion of Gates of the Arctic NP&Pres

A lawsuit was filed Tuesday to stop the Trump administration from building a 211-mile-long industrial road that would cross Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve and the Kobuk Wild and Scenic River in Alaska.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management last week granted a right-of-way for construction of the road, which would be used primarily to access a mining district. The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority had been pushing the road as part of the proposed Ambler Mining District Industrial Access Project.
