Click here to see a map of the area

The BLM Miles City Field Office will temporarily close the Dry Creek road in Powder River County due to public safety concerns associated with construction work.

Work is scheduled to start in early June and last for approximately two months. Roughly five miles of stock watering pipeline will be laid within or adjacent to the road to reduce surface disturbances.

The Dry Creek road is located southeast of the Moorhead camping area and begins roughly ½ mile south of the junction of Moorhead road and East Powder River road and runs east-west toward the Buffalo Creek Wilderness Study Area. 

Signs will be in place on-location to advise travelers of the boundaries of this short-term road closure.
