The closures are due to blasting activity related to the Section Six Pit Development Project. Engineering crews are creating a stockpile of aggregate for future use on the Forests.
According to Lynelle Knehans, Central Zone Civil Engineer, Trails 851, 852, 855, 856, 857 and the southern half of Trail 854, from its junction with Trail 850 to its junction with Road 100, will close temporarily. Old Musselshell Road 5150 and Shell Contour Roads 5150B and 5150C are already closed to through traffic.
“This activity is very dangerous and the public should not be in the immediate area,” Knehans said. “All trails will be closed during blasting activities.”
