Elbow Gravel Pit Discussions Ended


SEELEY LAKE – The Montana Department of Natural Resources & Conservation (DNRC) Southwestern Land Office – Clearwater Unit announced Tuesday, March 14 that the environmental analysis for the Elbow Gravel Pit has stopped and the development of the pit will not be going forward. LHC, Inc., the contractor that approached DNRC for the use of the land, has found an alternative source of gravel for the repaving project from mile marker 16 to 32 on Highway 83.

In a letter dated March 14, Clearwater Unit Manager Kristen Baker-Dickinson thanks those who provided comments and suggestions regarding the proposed Elbow Gravel Pit on DNRC-managed land off Highway 83, three miles north of Clearwater Junction.

“LHC, Inc., the successful bidder on the re-paving project north of Seeley Lake, has selected an alternate gravel source,” stated the letter. “DNRC will begin a new environmental analysis in the event that is a future proposed use of this gravel deposit.”

Baker-Dickinson wrote the DNRC will have no direct involvement in the Seeley North re-paving project and questions should be directed to LHC, Inc.

LHC, Inc. was contacted for more information regarding the alternate gravel source, however they did not respond by press deadline.
