Beartooth Highway Road Clearing - 2016
The Beartooth Highway is currently CLOSED for the season.
The 2017 season opening date is tentatively set for Memorial Day Weekend 2017.
MDT is responsible for the highway to the Montana/Wyoming border, where the National Park Service takes over maintenance responsibilities through Wyoming, back into Montana and into Yellowstone Park. MDT and NPS coordinate closely in keeping the road open throughout the summer.
Opening the Beartooth Highway is a huge undertaking - check out these videos of our crews working hard to get it open for the 2016 season! A map of Beartooth highway is provided to assist with descriptions and landmarks mentioned in the videos.
