Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Secondary Highway
203 North of Stevensville 

STEVENSVILLE  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to resurface about 3.9 miles of Secondary
Highway 203 (S-203) north of Stevensville in Ravalli County. The
project begins at the start of S-203 at the intersection with
Secondary Highway 269 at reference post 0.0 and extends easterly and
then northerly for 3.9 miles, ending 0.1 miles north of Lonesome Pine
Trail at reference post 3.9.

Proposed work includes milling off the
upper layer of pavement and replacing with new pavement (on the first
1.3 miles), seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement markings
and signing and delineation upgrades. The purpose of the project is
to enhance the safety of the traveling public and take a
cost-effective action to prolong and preserve the existing pavement.

The project is tentatively scheduled for 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.

District Administrator Ed Toavs at (406) 523-5802 or Project Design
Engineer Joshua Dold at (406) 444 6385. Members of the public may
