The Beartooth Highway closed again Tuesday, May 28, for paving operations and fence work and will reopen again the afternoon of Thursday, May 30, according to the Montana Department of Transportation.

The highway opened partially to Vista Point on the Montana side the Friday before Memorial Day, but heavy snow prevented a full opening.

The 68-mile highway is a gateway to Yellowstone National Park and has been named one of the most scenic drives in the United States. The highway winds through the Beartooth Mountains.
