Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Roadway Safety Improvements in Sanders and
Lincoln Counties 

THOMPSON FALLS  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal for roadway safety improvements on Montana
Highway 200 (MT-200) and Montana Highway 56 (MT-56), as described
below:

 Site 1 (MT-200 north of Trout Creek from reference post
[RP] 16.7 to RP 18.2): Flatten roadside slopes and improve the
rotation of the roadway surface through a curve. Also, install
delineation and actuated curve warning sign.
 Site 2 (MT-56 south of
Troy from RP 26.3 to RP 27.0): Flatten roadside slopes and install
delineation.

The purpose of the project is to enhance roadway safety
for the traveling public.

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 is anticipated. Utility relocations may be needed.
