Earlier this week Zimmerman trail was closed due to winter driving conditions and then closed for scheduled maintenance.Now Zimmerman Trail is closed for the foreseeable future!

 

Public works officials have been doing Spring maintenance on Zimmerman Trail since March 25th.  Some of that work interfered with a guard rail that let loose after a rock slide crashed on to 250 feet of guard rail.  Now it is too dangerous for road crews to begin repair of the guard rail.

Billings Public Works Director, Dave Mumford is working with the Montana Department of Transportation to find federal money to hire a contractor to clear the rubble and loose rocks which are barely attached to the slopes of Zimmerman Trail.

Dave Mumford was asked to gauge the severity of the rock slide, he said,

out of a scale of 1-10, the rock slide is an 8 or 9.
