Bannack Bypass Road Improvement EA
Development, Improvements, and Enhancements - 04/30/2007

An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the Bannack State Park Road Maintenance Project. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks proposes to improve the condition of the by-pass road in Bannack State Park through reshaping, widening, fixing drainage issues, removing vegetation, and adding a shoulder in areas. Event parking would also be expanded by enlarging the existing overflow lot and adding a bus pull-out. As part of the same project, various erosion control measures would be implemented on an eroding hillside underneath a historic water flume, and barbs installed in Grasshopper Creek. This Draft EA is available for review in Helena at FWP’s Headquarters, the State Library, and the Environmental Quality Council. It also may be obtained from FWP at the address provided above, or viewed on FWP’s Internet website: http://www.fwp.mt.gov . Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks invites you to comment on the attached proposal. The public comment period will be accepted until 5:00 p.m., May 28, 2007. Comments should be sent to the following: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Bannack State Park, 4200 Bannack Road, Dillon MT 59725 or e-mailed to: dalec@mt.gov.
