Acquisitions, Trades & Leases
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) proposes to convey ownership of approximately 0.33-acre (thirty-three hundredths of an acre) of the 35–acre Powerhouse FAS to the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT). This land constitutes less than 1% of the fishing access site, and will be used by MDT as part of the designated right of way for the reconstruction of an existing bridge that spans the Big Hole River between state Highway 43 and the Powerhouse FAS. The land to be conveyed to MDT will not be fenced off, and public use of the slope down to the river will still be allowed. Only a small portion of the conveyed land (approximately one-tenth of an acre adjoining the roadway) will be impacted by the bridge reconstruction activities. The popular boat ramp on the north side of Powerhouse Road will not be affected by the conveyance of this small parcel on the south side of the road.
