Beartooth Highway to Close As Snow Approaches

Posted: Updated:

Portions of the Beartooth Highway will close temporarily Tuesday evening at 6 p.m., as winter storms are expected to hit high elevations.

Yellowstone National Park Spokesman Al Nash says 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.
