The Montana Department of Transportation has opened the Fish Creek Road from Interstate 90 (Fish Creek exit) to Highway 12 (at Mile Marker Six). This will allow a linked access from Interstate 90 to Highway 12 for travel in both directions. Transportation and law enforcement officials are recommending travelers use this road only if required due to the road’s unimproved condition.
Motorists are advised to stay on the main road (343).
