The Northern Corridor Highway must be stopped because:
Red Cliffs NCA is part of the ancestral homelands of Southern Paiute and Pueblo communities. These lands are filled with significant cultural resources to Indigenous communities in the Southwest region that construction will irreparably harm.
The construction of the Northern Corridor Highway and related decisions would cause habitat degradation and destruction leading to the permanent loss of Mojave desert tortoise habitat. The highway will impact over 20 additional threatened, endangered, and sensitive species including the Gila monster, burrowing owl, and kit fox.
Red Cliffs NCA is a popular destination for all outdoor enthusiasts with world-class recreation that attracts over 200,000 visitors annually. In addition to harming the integrity of the protected landscape, the Northern Corridor Highway would damage 15 popular trails.
