A possible highway project through the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area may mean a shift in mountain biking routes. The Bureau of Land Management and Fish and Wildlife Service are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement on the Utah Department of Transportation's proposed Northern Corridor in Washington County. Since the road would go through area protected for the desert tortoise, the proposal involves setting other land aside for the species. The agencies plan a public scoping meeting Dec. 17 in St. George and are taking comments through Jan. 6.
