Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Surfacing Project on Interstate 90 Near
St. Regis

ST. REGIS  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT)
would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to
rehabilitate the concrete pavement on about 8.1 miles of Interstate
90 east of St. Regis in Mineral County. The project begins 1.3 miles
east of St. Regis at reference post 34.7 and extends southeast 8.1
miles, ending at the bridge end at reference post 43.6.

Proposed
work includes replacing damaged concrete panels, installing dowel
bars to stabilize the concrete joints, grinding the pavement surface
to smooth out the ride, and sealing the concrete joints. Other work
includes replacing the asphalt shoulders and upgrading pavement
markings, signage and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to
rehabilitate the existing concrete pavement and asphalt shoulders to
extend the service life of the pavement.

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