Soap Gulch Road to be Resurfaced


The Bureau of Land Management will close Soap Gulch Road for about two weeks during a road improvement project starting June 13.

Nearly three miles of the road, located north of Melrose off the Frontage Road, will be resurfaced during the project. The road will be closed to the public Monday through Friday and re-open on the weekends. The start and finish dates of the project are weather dependent.

For more information on the project, call the BLM’s Butte Field Office at (406) 533-7600.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
