BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - The Gallatin County Road Department has no plans to finish paving Buffalo Jump Road from Logan to the south, along the east bank of the Madison River.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1HmlcTK ) that the county in 2012 used recycled asphalt from a state road construction project near Belgrade to pave a 4.5-mile section of the road.

Road Foreman Mitch Urdahl says the county paved as much as it could before running out of asphalt. The county’s budget now has no funds for new paving projects.

The paving stops before Madison Buffalo Jump State Park. The Gallatin County Commission this week called the state park a local asset and economic driver.

Some local residents believe the county should have finished paving the road all the way to the park.
