Highway 80 in the U.S. State of Montana is a route running in a northerly direction from an intersection with U.S. Route 87 at the community of Stanford. The highway extends approximately 62 miles (100 km) to a northern terminus at the town of Fort Benton. The landscape is hilly and rural, and largely used for wheat farming; the road also passes through Arrow Creek Canyon and near the Highwood Mountains. Between Arrow Creek and Geraldine Highway 80 is roughly paralleled by the main line of Central Montana Rail.[2]


History[edit]

Before receiving its current designation, Highway 80 was designated as Montana Secondary Highway 230.
