Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Safety Improvements on Secondary Highway
269

HAMILTON — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to install
safety improvements at three locations on Secondary Highway 269 in
Ravalli County. The proposed project includes the following work:

•
East of Stevensville at the intersection of Middle Burnt Fork Road
and Logan Lane: Upgrade intersection signing with new larger
“intersection ahead” signs with street name, new “stop ahead” signs,
stop signs and “cross traffic does not stop” signs.

• South of
Hamilton at the intersection of U.S. Highway 93 and Roaring Lion
Road: Install new “intersection ahead” signs with street name and
reset Secondary Highway 531 route marker sign further to the north. 

• North of Hamilton on Secondary Highway 269: Replace and extend
w-beam guardrail and upgrade end sections on both sides of the
roadway at the curve at reference post 2.40 and install delineation
on outside of the curve.

The purpose of the proposed improvements is
to add enhanced intersection signing, upgrade guardrail, and install
delineation. 

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction
in the spring of 2019, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. No new
right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.
