Rock Remediation on 6th Ave. North

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Crews are going to close a portion of Sixth Avenue North this weekend to work on the rock formation above the road.

City engineer Debi Meling says crews did berm work and some rock removal last weekend. Now, they will work on what they call the Santa Claus rock to lay it down. The road will be closed starting at 2 PM on Saturday until whenever they finish the work on Sunday.

Meling says she doesn't expect as many rocks to fall on the road, so Sixth Avenue North will be open sooner than last weekend.
