Orphan Stretch of Beartooth Highway

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

It's a small stretch of highway -- that seems to be forgotten.

According to Al Nash, Spokesperson for Yellowstone National Park, Superintendent Dan Wenk asked Governor Mead to get Wyoming to take ownership of an orphan stretch of the Beartooth Highway.

Right now the park maintains the road, but with the budget cuts, it can no longer make it a prime concern.

WYDOT estimates the cost to be in the millions to fix outstanding issues on the 35-mile stretch.
