Public Involvement Program
Since transportation projects often impact Montana residents personally and professionally, this office works to increase public awareness of upcoming projects and to provide the public with ample opportunity to become involved in shaping project design and development.
This is primarily accomplished through two mechanisms:
The Public Involvement Program coordinates meetings for upcoming projects throughout the state, working with district staff and MDT consultants to ensure that the department provides ample opportunity for public input and comment.
Public Involvement staff prepares and distributes news releases announcing proposed projects, including total reconstructions, railroad crossings, bridge replacements, temporary detours, and paving or overlay projects.
