Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Bridge Rehabilitation Project in Mineral,
Missoula, Ravalli, Lincoln, and Flathead Counties 

MISSOULA  The
Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the
public and seek comments on a proposal to repair deteriorating steel
components on bridges in multiple counties in western Montana. The
majority of the bridges are located along the Interstate 90 corridor
in Mineral and Missoula counties between reference post 33.0 and
reference post 118.0.

The proposed work includes cleaning and
painting of steel surfaces, repair of areas with section loss, crack
repair, and repair of bearings. The purpose of the project is to
repair and protect steel elements to extend the life of these
bridges.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in
2020, depending on completion of all project development activities
and availability of funding. No new right-of-way or utility
relocations will be needed.

For more information, please contact
Missoula District Administrator Ed Toavs at (406) 523-5802 or Project
Design Engineer Chris Hardan at (406) 444 9221. Members of the public
may submit written comments to the Montana Department of
Transportation Missoula office at P.O. Box 7039, Missoula, MT
