Muddy conditions are frustrating attempts to complete road repairs in central Montana that would give about 300 stranded residents a way out of their rural neighborhood. 

More roads deteriorated following yet another round of rain in the area Sunday night in Musselshell County.

The main route into a cutoff area south of Roundup has been impassable since the Musselshell River last week washed out a section of Number 4 Road. Crews have been working to re-establish an alternate route along Fattig Creek Road, but officials said progress has been slow.

The Musselshell River is forecast to stay above flood stage until possibly Thursday following more than two weeks of flooding in Roundup and surrounding communities.

Supplies were being ferried to residents of the cutoff area by boat.
