Beartooth Highway

Project Description

The proposed action is the reconstruction of approximately 2.32 miles of Segment 4 of U.S. 212, Beartooth Highway, in need of improvement. This project begins at the Top of the World Store to the Island Lake Campground Approach Road and to the newly constructed HPP 4-1(7) portion of the road west of the Long Lake Outlet Bridge at KP 49.33 (mile post 30.6).

The reconstruction will be along the existing road in Segment 4, with an overall objective of an improved roadway alignment, grade, and width. The project consists of a reconstructed roadway with a width of 32 feet. The project will also include removing and replacing an existing bridge, and construction of a new bridge with a width of 36 feet.

In addition, this project covers improvements to the West Summit Site on the highway east of the roadway improvement project at Beartooth Pass to include grading and installation of aggregate base to the entrance road and parking area.
