If you’re heading up Lost Horse Road in the Bitterroot National Forest, be ready for road construction through the middle of August.

Public Affairs Officer Tod McKay said there will be temporary delays for motorists and campers because of road grading and laying new gravel on the section between the Lick Creek Junction and Lost Horse Cabin.

Parking will not be allowed on the 10-mile section or in pull-outs on the weekdays. McKay said the delays could be up to one hour. Work hours will be between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.

No work will be done on the weekends – Friday through Sunday.

Over the last 15 years, the road has become extremely rough due to the traffic to Schumaker Campground and Twin Lakes. Road construction signs are in place and a water truck is on hand for reducing the dust.

For more information, call the Darby Ranger District at (406) 821-3913.
