In addition, a new roadway will be constructed to allow access to form T35-1 to GS-1 and FS-3. The access road will be 20' wide with a 30' right-of-way on either side, for a distance of up to two miles. The access road, along with all disturbed and/or excavated areas will be restored in-kind upon completion of testing.
