Work on the Fairgrounds Road on the east side of Hamilton is closing one lane of the two-lane road. Officials are allowing only east-bound traffic on the road from the entrance of Stonegate to the Ravalli County Fairgrounds. The road is closed 24 hours a day to west-bound traffic and a detour route takes autos onto Kurtz Lane by Hamilton High School and onto Marcus leading onto Hamilton's Main Street.

Pavement is being removed from one half of the road as crew continue improvement work that has been continuing each year as access to Hamilton High School is being improved.
