BLM Temporarily Closes Road for Cattle Guard Maintenance

The Bureau of Land Management’s Butte Field Office will temporarily close a portion of Indian Creek Road for up to two days this week for repair and cleaning of a cattle guard.

Sometime between Tuesday and Thursday, BLM maintenance workers will work on the road at the north end between BLM and Forest Service land, about 10 miles west of Townsend. The cattle guard is located along a narrow section of the road where the heavy equipment doing the repair will prevent vehicles from traveling through this location. Signs will be posted on both ends of Indian Creek Road where vehicles can turn around prior to encountering heavy equipment.

For more information, contact 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 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.
