According to a representative of the Montana Department of Transportation, the Beartooth Highway from Red Lodge to the state line will open Friday, May 25.

If you are looking to make plans for Memorial Day weekend, 24 miles of U.S. Highway 212 will open just in time for a spring road trip on the Beartooth Highway. The highway will be open from mile marker 69 near Red Lodge to mile marker 45 near the state line. Wyoming plans to have the other side of the highway from mile marker 45 to Cooke City open by June 1.

The opening isn't set in stone, however. If a spring snow storm moves into the area, it may delay the scheduled opening.
