The section of Beartooth Highway from roughly the Top of the World store to the stateline will close for the season 8 a.m. Thursday because of bad weather.

That section was originally scheduled to close Oct. 12.

Ice and snow are in the forecast and hazardous driving conditions are expected.

Travel east of Cooke City, Montana (Yellowstone’s Northeast Entrance), to Chief Joseph Scenic Byway is possible until early November.
