Yellowstone flood event 2022: Northeast Entrance Road washouts

Portions of Yellowstone National Park’s Northeast Entrance road were washed away by Lamar River flood waters in June.

POWELL — Yellowstone National Park officials announced an ambitious goal of finishing temporary repairs to the park’s northern roads by mid-October and have forged a deal with the Montana and Wyoming transportation departments to plow “the plug” — Beartooth Pass — this coming winter, if necessary.

“We have very aggressive timelines to get these temporary repairs completed, both for the Northeast Entrance Road and the North Entrance road,” Superintendent Cam Sholly said during a Tuesday interview.
