Unsafe Road Restricts Vehicle Access At Black Bridge FAS

Walk-in traffic allowed until repairs are completed

Miles City - Beginning this week, vehicle access to Black Bridge Fishing Access Site near Glendive will not be permitted until road repairs can be made. The FAS remains open, but the entrance gate is closed and visitor access will be walk-in only.

The Yellowstone River has significantly undercut and eroded the access road to the site, creating a public safety issue. Fish, Wildlife & Parks staff had attempted to allow limited vehicle traffic on the downstream end of the site, but visitor compliance was poor. Visitors repeatedly removed signage and barriers and drove on unsafe roads or drove off road, which caused resource damage.

Road repairs are being planned and vehicle access will be restored when the project is completed.
