Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks announces improvement projects beginning at Carter’s Bridge and Highway 89 Bridge Fishing Access Sites on the Yellowstone River.
Beginning in early April, the parking lot at the popular Carter’s Bridge Fishing Access Site four miles south of Livingston will be improved and expanded. Twelve additional parking spaces and a cul-de-sac will be added. The site will remain partially open and accessible during construction. The contractor is Omdahl Excavation and Utilities of Bozeman.
A second improvement project will begin on March 28 at the Highway 89 Bridge Fishing Access Site eight miles north of Livingston. Existing parking will be improved and expanded and a ramp will be constructed to provide access to overflow parking at this well-used site.
In addition, a concrete boat ramp and latrine will be installed. Construction will take place throughout the month of April. While the site will remain partially open, activities may be limited by construction. The existing boat ramp will be closed for two to three weeks during the installation of the new concrete ramp. Hall Construction Services of Belgrade will complete the work.
“We apologize for any inconvenience these improvement projects may cause and ask for the public’s cooperation during the construction period,” said Tom Greason, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 3 Fishing Access Site Manager.
Both projects should be completed by the end of April in time for the start of the summer river recreation season.
