Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Culvert Replacement/Repair Project on U.S.
Highway 2 East of Chinook

CHINOOK  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to repair/replace up to 37 culverts spanning
about 24 miles of U.S. Highway 2 east of Chinook in Blaine County.
The project begins just outside the east city limits of Chinook at
reference post 404.0 and extends east for 23.9 miles, ending near the
Milk River bridge near the town of Fort Belknap at reference post
427.9.

Proposed work includes repairing and replacing 18 to 36
failing culverts in the corridor. The purpose of the project is to
restore function to corroded and failing culverts until
reconstruction projects can be completed.

The project is tentatively
scheduled for construction in 2018, depending on completion of all
project development activities and availability of funding. New
right-of-way or utility relocations may be needed at spot locations.

For more information, please contact Great Falls District
Preconstruction Engineer Steve Prinzing at (406) 454-5899 or Great
Falls District Project Engineer Christie McOmber at (406) 454-5900.

Department of Transportation Great Falls office at P.O. Box 1359,
Great Falls, MT 59403-1359, or online at:
