Project on track

The Big Sky Bridge Decks project continues next week.

On the bridge by Little Coyote Road, crews are finishing the barrier rail. Workers will reconstruct bridge ends to ensure a smooth transition from the road to the bridge. Paving of the bridge ends is anticipated the week of Oct. 5.

Curing

The Big Sky Bridge Decks project continues.

On the bridge by Little Coyote Road, the deck is curing and crews are rebuilding bridge ends, enabling a smooth transition from bridge to road. Construction workers are also working on forming a barrier rail on the sides of the bridge.

Hot dog!

Carol Collins has some connections to some big dogs – the folks behind a big hot dog. Noting that recent news has been a bit of a soggy bun, she thought it might be nice to invite the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile to visit Big Sky as a break from the pandemic, politics and fires.

Community goes beyond city limits

Big Sky Fire Department (BSFD) had boots on the ground over the weekend helping battle the zero percent contained, now over 7,000 acre blaze in the Bridgers.

BSFD Chief Greg Megaard, who was born and raised in the Gallatin Valley, said he does not remember ever seeing the Bridger mountains on fire like they were this last weekend.

On the prowl

Tim “Bo Tim” Pattison has faced many grizzly bears in his 45 years of hunting and picking up antlers around Big Sky. His foot was once in a sow grizzly’s mouth after he climbed a tree to try to get away from her – when she tried to pull him down.
