In light of the incoming winter storm, the Montana Department of Transportation, the Wyoming Department of Transportation, and the National Park Service are working with law enforcement authorities to temporarily close the Beartooth Highway tonight. This high elevation section of US-212 will be temporarily closed to through travel as of 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening, September 24. On the Wyoming side, the road will be closed at the Long Lake Gate, which is 14 miles east of the intersection with WY-296, the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. On the Montana side, the road will be closed at the bottom gate 13 miles south of Red Lodge.

After the storm passes, crews will re-evaluate the status of the road. Visitors and area residents may still travel between Red Lodge and Cooke City, Silver Gate, and the Northeast Entrance to Yellowstone by way of WY-296.
