Beartooth Under Construction - 30 minute delays daytime, Closed 8PM-8AM
FYI Red Lodge Attendees:
"An interagency team of state and federal agencies will soon begin rebuilding a nearly 1-mile segment of the Beartooth Highway.
The collaborative effort on U.S. Highway 212 will allow the completion of the 420-foot, three-span Beartooth Ravine steel girder bridge, 20-foot-high mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls and roadwork and landscaping.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation said work is expected to begin the third or fourth week of May. The challenging project is located in a “very remote location” and in “unforgiving terrain,” said WYDOT spokesman Cody Beers. It’s located about 14.5 miles east of U.S. 212’s intersection with Wyo. Highway 296 (the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway).
Crews under the supervision of Missouri River Contractors out of Helena, Montana, plan to work six days a week (with Sundays off) — including working around the clock Mondays through Thursdays. Beers said the road will be closed to travel overnight (from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m.) on weeknights with delays of up to 30 minutes during the day and on Fridays and Saturdays. There will be no work over holidays.
