Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project on Southbound Lanes of
Interstate 15

CASCADE  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to reseal about 8.7 miles of southbound lanes of Interstate 15 (I-15)
south of Cascade in Cascade County. 

The project begins 0.5 miles
north of the Hardy Creek Interchange at reference post 247.8 and
extends north for 8.7 miles, ending at the north end of the North
Cascade Interchange bridge at reference post 256.5.

Proposed work
includes crack sealing, seal and cover (chip seal), fog seal and new
pavement markings on I-15 southbound including the cross roads and
southbound on- and off-ramps at Tintinger and South Cascade
interchanges and the southbound on-ramp at the North Cascade
Interchange. The five bridges in the project limits will receive deck
preservation work and delineation. 

The purpose of the project is to
add skid resistance and extend the life of the roadway by sealing the
surface. 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.

For more information, please contact
Great Falls District Preconstruction Engineer Steve Prinzing or
District Projects Engineer Christie McOmber at (406) 454-5880.

Department of Transportation Great Falls office at P.O. Box 1359,
