Montana Department of
Transportation Proposes Safety Improvements on Roadways in Lake and
Sanders Counties

POLSON  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to install safety improvements on various roadways in Lake and
Sanders counties, as described below:

 Site 1  Montana Highway 200
east of Paradise: Install curve warning signs for curve at reference
post (RP) 86, panel delineation from RP 89-90.5 and replace missing
mile marker sign.
 Site 2  Montana Highway 28 (MT-28) north of
Lonepine: Install curve warning signs and chevrons for both curves
from RP 26.0 to 27.5.
 Site 3  MT-28 west of Elmo: Discourage
parking on and near the curve by removing widened pavement area,
extending delineation, and continuing No Parking signs through the
curve at RP 44. 
 Site 4  Secondary Highway 211 (S-211) west of
Ronan: Install advance intersection warning signing for eastbound and
westbound lanes, larger stop signs, new Rocky Butte Road street name
signs on S-211, new double arrow sign, and new stop ahead sign on
Rocky Butte Road.
 Site 5  Secondary Highway 354 southwest of
Polson: Install new chevrons on curves at RP 1.9 and RP 2.2.
 Site 6
 Secondary Highway 212 north of Moiese: Install actuated northbound
and southbound advance flashing beacons for the curve at RP 8.0. 

The purpose of the project is to enhance roadway safety for the
traveling public.

construction in 2018, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. No new
right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.
