Campus Drive reopened at UM after rock fall forced closure


MISSOULA, Mont. - The following is a press release from the UM Office of Public Safety:

After an inspection by a geologist, the M Trail and Campus Drive have been reopened at the University of Montana. They had been closed by a rock fall. Some parking near the mountain may still be cordoned off.

A boulder about 3 feet wide rolled off Mount Sentinel on Sunday night onto the UM campus, prompting officials to close a section of parking on Campus Drive.

The boulder took out the top part of a retaining wall before coming to rest on the street near the Parking Garage on the east side of campus. No one was injured.
