Bundy Bridge AccessGroups come together to build turnstyle
On July 10 a group of sportsmen and government officials met at the north side of Bundy Bridge near Pompy’s Pillar some 25 miles east of Billings. Our mission was to construct a walk thru access facility on the north west corner of the bridge.
Present were Irv Wilkey. Representing the Laurel R&G Club and the Billings R&G Club, ,Mike Penfold representing the Yellowstone River Forum, Ray Pearson Representing Public Land And Water Access Association and John Gibson representing the Magic City Fly Fishers, Billings R&G Club and PLWA. Two County Commissioners, Jim Reno and John Osland were present as were several FW&P employees including Gary Hammond, R5 Supervisor.
It is noteworthy to recognize that this is a right of way purchased by the Montana Dept of Transportation prior to the construction of the new bridge then turned over to Yellowstone County after construction was complete. The right of way is wide enough to accommodate parking off the road surface.
Perhaps the most compelling result that day was the numerous clubs and agencies working together for a common purpose. When we work together we can avoid many conflicts and accomplish a great deal.
