Improvements to Alkali Road Begin August 16

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Worland Field Office announced today that it will be upgrading a 3.9 mile stretch of the Alkali Road north of Hyattville. Work will begin on Monday, August 16 and is expected to be completed in mid-September.

While the road will remain open during the improvements, travelers may experience short delays. Repairs will include the removal of rock outcrops and stabilization and smoothing of the road.

The portion of the road to be improved lies along the Red Gulch/Alkali National Back Country Byway and is heavily used by recreationists and ranchers.

For updates on the road repairs, please contact the Worland Field Office at 307-347-5100.

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.
