The Montana Department of Transportation reports that US Highway 2 is closed between Havre and Chinook due to an accident.

Power lines are down across US 2 at mile marker 397 between Havre and Chinook.

The road will be closed to west-bound traffic at Havre and to east-bound traffic to Chinook until power lines are removed.

The MDT has estimated a 2-hour plus wait until power lines can be removed.

We will have more information as we get it.
