Bitterroot River and Florence Bridge FAS Temporary Closure Rules

ARM Rules

05/02/2013

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) is seeking comment on a proposed rule that would close a portion of Florence Bridge Fishing Access Site (FAS) on the Bitterroot River to address safety concerns while the Eastside Highway bridge is replaced. MDT will provide public float passage through the construction zone, but there may be short periods of time when activities will create unsafe conditions for river users. Accordingly, the rule would also grant FWP, with the approval of the local FWP commissioner, the authority to temporarily close the entire site and the Bitterroot River 1,000 feet above and below the construction site if conditions become unsafe.
