Zimmerman Trail May Re-Open in June

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

When will Zimmerman Trail re-open? Billings City managers say they're hoping to have the road open again to traffic in early June.

Public Works Director Dave Mumford says there are several rocks, weighing 600 tons or more, which must be removed.

Mumford says federal money will be used to remove the rocks and it will cost between one to one-and-a-half million dollars. He says they hope to have a contractor in place by mid may to remove the rocks. Crews are unable to work on the damaged road and guardrail until the rocks are removed.
