The Little Bighorn Battlefield park tour road and parking lots will have a complete overlay and chip seal this year.

The work will be done between June 30 and mid-September, although there may be periods of time when no work will be done.

Visitors should be aware that when visiting the battlefield during these dates, delays may be possible.

The resurfacing of all roads and pavement in the park is being performed by the Federal Highway Pavement Preservation Project. Additionally, damaged areas will be repaired before being resurfaced.

The Federal Highways Department will complete the resurfacing project with new traffic striping on the park road network, according to a news release from the battlefield. 

Visitors should be aware that temporary and short term road closures as well as single lane traffic may be encountered during road paving.

For more information about this road paving project, or for general information, call 638-2621 or go to www.nps.gov/libi or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/npslibi.
