Yellowstone flood flyover

Erosion from flooding approaches a section of Northeast Entrance Road next the Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park on June 19.

Road work that’s meant to restore access between Yellowstone National Park and the gateway towns to its north and northeast is expected to wrap up by mid-October, officials announced last week.

After a 500-year flood event damaged roads and infrastructure around the park in mid-June, crews have been repairing sections of the Northeast Entrance Road and conducting major improvements along Old Gardiner Road.
