dc.description 158 pp. Tables, maps, references, appendices. "The 16 Road Project Area is located approximately 37 road miles from the cities of John Day/Canyon City and 26 miles from Prairie City. The Federal Register identifies all three cities as at risk to urban interface fires. Between these Cities and the 16 Road Project are many homes with outbuildings, ranches, and cabins. Many of these dwellings are directly adjacent or intermingled with National Forest lands. The highest concentrations of homes interfacing with the National Forest are located along Highway 395 (South of John Day/Canyon City), County Road 65 (along Canyon Creek – South of John Day/Canyon City), and County Road 62 (South of Prairie City)."
