Beartooth Highway Partially Reopens

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (NMB) – A 23 mile stretch of the iconic Beartooth Highway northeast of Yellowstone National Park has reopened following the repairing of damage caused by recent unprecedented floods.

This partial reopening includes 23 miles of the Beartooth Highway beginning at the US-212/WY-296 junction to the Beartooth Ski Hill parking lot.

Nighttime closures will resume within this partially reopened roadway at the Pilot Index Overlook east to Beartooth Lake Campground. The closure is Monday through Thursday from 7 PM-7 AM, and this will be in effect through mid-October.

Travelers will need to turn around at the ski hill parking lot due to flood damage on the remainder of the highway.

The towns of Cooke City, Montana, and Silver Gate, Montana, remain open for visitor travel.
