Following rockslides Tuesday afternoon, officials closed portions of Montana 35 between Polson and Bigfork and urged drivers to reroute along U.S. 93.

According to the Montana Department of Transportation, a landslide north of Finley Point left one lane of the state highway blocked. A large boulder on the roadway obstructed both lanes about two miles north, officials said.

Motorists heading south from Flathead County on Montana 35 were encouraged to cut over to U.S. 93 via Montana 82. Those heading north from Lake County were advised to stick to U.S. 93.
