On Map V, the frontage road between Terry and Fallon is closed due to a landslide.  Length of time for the closure is unknown.  You can take I-94 as an alternate.  Check http://roadreport.mdt.mt.gov/map/ for updates.

With slides like this, cyclists are usually able to get through - unless they are actually doing work on the section.  Even then, allowing a little time leeway - the construction workers will usually let you get across.  From the wording of the Montana DOT notice - "Road not safe for travel" - I suspect that it is quite possible to get through.  BUT, I do not know for certain.  I was teaching down the road in Miles City until May.  I know the road and it is quite nice - - far nicer than the interstate.  In fact, if Old US 10 has only local traffic, then it will be a delight to ride.  Ask first in Fallon or Terry.

A cyclist wrote in and said she was indeed able to bike through this section.
