Board of County Commissioners - Governing Body


This is to notify residents of the upcoming closure of Stillwater River Road between Midnight Canyon Bridge and Beartooth Land Office, approximately 12 miles from Absarokee.  The road will be CLOSED starting May 29th and is scheduled to remain closed until August 31st.  This will be the final work on the Stillwater River Road Rockslide project.  This portion of the work will be bolting and netting of the rock face.  We ask that you please stay clear of the area as there will be repelling, heavy equipment work, and some rock scaling in the area.  Sorry for the inconvenience of the road closure and thanks in advance for your cooperation.
