Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Secondary Route
236

WINIFRED  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to seal and
cover about 12 miles of Secondary Highway 236 south of Winifred in
Fergus County. The project begins at Andrews Road at reference post
11.55 and extends north to reference post 23.10, ending at Winifred.

Proposed work includes sealing existing cracks and applying a seal
and cover. The project will also receive upgraded pavement markings,
signage and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to preserve and
extend the life of the existing asphalt surfacing to provide a safe
roadway for the traveling public.

This 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.
