Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Safety Enhancement Project on Interstate
and Roadway Sections in Southcentral Montana Counties

BUTTE  The
Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the
public and seek comments on a proposal to update signing and
delineation on sections of Interstate 15 (I-15), a section of
Interstate 90 (I-90) and Little Basin Creek Road, in southcentral
Montana counties.

The project locations are as follows: 

Site 1
(I-15 north of Melrose): Install panel delineation on both sides of
the interstate from reference post (RP) 97.2 to RP 99.1 in Silver Bow
County. 

Site 2 (I-15 south of Rocker): Install panel delineation on
both sides of the interstate from RP 118.2 to RP 118.8 in Silver Bow
County. 

Site 3 (I-15 north of Lima): Install median standard
delineation from RP 17.4 to RP 23.5 in Beaverhead County.

Site 4
(I-90 south of Warm Springs): Install panel delineation on both sides
of the interstate from RP 205.3 to RP 206.4 in Deer Lodge County.  

Site 5 (Little Basin Creek Road south of Butte): Install panel
delineation and advanced curve signing for two curves, one at RP 1.2
and the other at RP 1.3 in Silver Bow County.  

Proposed work
includes upgrading signage and delineation. The purpose of the
projects is to address road departure crashes.

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.
