GARDINER -

A special ceremony was held today outside the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner to mark opening day at the park.

Members of the Park Service, community and elected officials gathered to kick off the summer season at Yellowstone and phase one of the Gardiner Gateway Project.

Major infrastructure work is underway on Park street to improve the overall visitor experience in Gardiner.

Improvements include wider sidewalks to make it safer for pedestrians, a new parking setup, public restrooms and a welcome center.

The total cost is more than $20 million, most of which is covered by the Federal Land Access Program.

Organizers say the changes will make a big difference for visitors and the town of Gardiner.

The goal is to wrap up work in Gardiner by the centennial of the Park Service, which is August 26, 2016.

    “I’ve never seen anything like this in my career of 28 years, it’s certainly one of the more bizarre cases,” said Butte Sheriff Ed Lester. Bizarre is right. On June 26th of 2012, two hikers found a plastic garbage bag and inside was a pair of severed legs, cut off at just about the knee.
