Landslide caused road closure Landslide caused road closure

BLAINE COUNTY - A landslide last month made Timber Ridge Road impassable and unsafe for travel.  For the last few weeks, Bureau of Land Management has been repairing the road and today opened it back up to the public. 

Josh Chase, Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument Manager, said “Ensuring Americans have access to their public lands is important to the BLM. We did everything we could to ensure Timber Ridge Road was fixed and reopened as soon as it was safe."

Timber Ridge Road is located in Blaine County on the north side of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, about 2 miles west of the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation.
