Beartooth Highway

Several state and federal agencies collaborated to complete the multi-million dollar Beartooth Highway project, which will improve the safety, environmental impact, and overall experience of one of the main roads to Yellowstone National Park.

Extensive repairs on the Montana side of U.S. 212 are finished, and the Beartooth Highway can finally reopen for Summer 2022, and this time – hopefully – it will stay open.

The Beartooth Highway is a “snow go” for tourists, and W.Y.D.O.T. and M.D.O.T. say it will take until next week to remove four feet of snow dropped on the pass since it opened – and closed – on May 27. Last Friday, the Beartooth Highway opened for Summer 2022 at 8 a.m. By 5 p.m.,…

Adverse weather kept W.Y.D.O.T. busy this weekend, as crews saved stranded drivers while clearing major highways of several feet of snow and falling rocks. Memorial Day 2022 was wet and cold in northwest Wyoming. However, the weather was severe enough that many drivers got caught in the snow at higher elevations, needing help from W.Y.D.O.T.…
