BLM Closes Road in North Hills for Maintenance

BUTTE (Aug. 18, 2011) — The Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office will temporarily close a road in the North Hills area near Helena for maintenance.

In a two-phased project, a portion of a North Hills seasonal spur road (0517) will be closed starting Aug. 22 as crews do some grading and road work. The remainder of the connecting road (0516), between Snowdrift Road and the seasonal spur road (0517), will be closed from Aug. 29 to Sept. 16. 

A map showing the roads in the North Hills can be found at (Click on Map 5a).

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 sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
