Rte around Yellowstone

I am currently in Gardiner,Mt, with plans to leave going S into Idaho then Utah on Tuesday. I just drove part of the route in my toad and it has 6 miles of muddy, rough construction, so am looking at alternatives. Has anybody driven 191 or 287 south out of Bozeman and if so what are they like. Yes it means I have to go N to 90, but it may be faster and easier on my rig than following and holding up traffic in Yellowstone.

We normally stay in West Yellowstone, have driven north to Bozeman on 191 several times, love the drive. 287 is OK, not a beautiful as 191.

th Hi Catcoach,
I have taken both roads. It was several years ago, I do not know the current conditions. Either road is fine for a coach and toad. A long as you are going to I 90, consider going a bit farther west to Whitehall. Pick up route 41 south. Get on I 15 south, at Dillon, for the longer drive.

So I took GaryKD's advice went north to Whitehall and then his route to I-15, long way around but avoided the construction and the projected 30 -45 minute delay. Thanks

3rd on going thru YNP, coming out thru Tetons into Jackson Hole.. Much easier and less mileage.. Suggestion - time this so as to not get caught in some of the peak time YNP tourist traffic

Don't take 212. The construction is only on the east leg of the north loop. South of Rosevelt tower. Stay on 89. The roads are fine for a RV. You might get hold up a few times by an "animal jam" but other that that you should be fine.
