From the press release:

Nominations of public lands will be accepted over a 30-day comment period from August 1-31, 2022. Lands nominated must meet these criteria:

  • Must be managed by the Service.
  • Must be at least 640 contiguous acres.
  • Must have significantly restricted access or no public access.
  • Must be open under federal or state law to hunting, fishing or use of the land for other public recreational purposes.
  • Should have potential for public access and the likelihood of changing the current lack of public access or restriction to public access.
The public is encouraged to provide additional information as to why a nominated parcel deserves consideration. Once the nomination period closes, the Service will review the submissions to determine which lands meet the requirements and considerations specified by the Dingell Act.

The public comment period is open from August 1-31, and the last paragraph of the press release says the final priority list will be posted "by September 2022." This tells me they already have the list done and are just asking for public comment to check a box.

It would be great if they could build marked crossings at corner crossings.
