Several days after Yellowstone National Park reopened its two Wyoming entrances to visitors, the park lifted the gates at its north and northeastern Montana entrances for through-traffic only. It may provide relief for some business owners during Memorial Day weekend.

Edit April 16: The article has been corrected to say the bridge is near Tower Junction. 

The National Park Service recently gave the green light for the replacement of a nearly 60-year old bridge in Yellowstone to improve visitor safety.
