Though the Bureau of Land Management will not close Jimmie New Road during the mastication, the BLM wants the public to be aware that heavy equipment will be working near the road for the next several weeks. Jimmie New Road is located between Jerry Creek and Johnson Creek Roads near Wise River
Signs will be posted along the road, identifying where the machinery is working. The public is asked to stay a minimum of 300 feet away from the working equipment. Flying debris is common with this type of operation and creates a potential hazard to anyone using the road.
For more information, contact Marylou Zimmerman at the BLM’s Butte Field Office at (406) 533-7600.
