CFLR Program Frequently Asked Questions
Can a permanent road be constructed with non-CFLRF funding?
No permanent roads may be constructed as part of a CFLR project. PL 111-11, Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, TITLE IV--FOREST LANDSCAPE RESTORATION, Sec. 4003 (b) (1) (F) requires that the CFLR project proposal not include the establishment of permanent roads. Temporary roads constructed for restoration treatments need to be decommissioned. Existing roads can be decommissioned, maintained, and re-constructed (including minor re-routes) where the purpose of the activity is to reduce ecological impacts from the road and to facilitate achievement of landscape strategy objectives.
