MADISON COUNTY ROAD REVIEW
NORRIS CONNECTION ROAD EAST
Norris Connection Road East is not a county road, according the Madison County Commission Office. Documentation that Madison County’s road review committee retrieved indicated to the county commissioners that Norris Connection Road East is not the county’s responsibility. The county abandoned the old road that climbs behind J.R.’s Tires in Norris after U.S. Highway 84 was completed in 1934. It goes through Montana University’s Red Bluff Research Ranch and Bureau of Land Management land to connect to Bradley Creek road. The deed to a jagged property in Norris was recently transferred to new owners in October 2019. They inquired about the road’s status, according to Madison County Commissioner Ron Nye. “No one knows how they’re accessing it,” Nye said. No dwellings are on the 48-acre property surrounded by state lands. The revocable trust is out of Big Timber and there is no evidence available to show if the land is being accessed.
