BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The Montana Department of Transportation closed the Beartooth Pass at the Montana-Wyoming state line early Monday morning.

The Wyoming side of the pass is completely closed to traffic from Long Lake to the state line because of snow and ice on the road.

On the Montana side of the pass, conditions were wet with snow falling on the top of the pass, according to the Transportation Department.

The Billings Gazette reports that there was no information available Monday afternoon on when the pass will re-open. The Beartooth Pass normally stays open through mid-October as weather allows.
