MDT proposes an Access Management Plan for U.S. Highway 93 South in
the Hamilton area and schedules an open house to discuss plan –
Ravalli County

Hamilton -  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like
to notify the public and seek comments on the draft access management
plan for U.S. Highway 93 in the Hamilton area.	The plan begins at
Angler’s Roost Bridge just south of Hamilton, at reference post 43.7
and extends north through Hamilton for 5.3 miles, ending just south
of the Bitterroot River at reference post 49.0.

The plan will identify a long-term conceptual strategy to help
preserve efficient traffic flow along U.S. Highway 93 while providing
reasonable access to adjacent properties and businesses.  One public
informational meeting and individual contacts with adjacent property
owners has occurred during the development of the plan. This is the
final public project meeting.

A website including project overview, schedule, FAQ’s and related
