Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Safety Enhancement Project on Roadway
Sections in Gallatin County

BOZEMAN  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to update signing and delineation on a variety
of roadway sections in Gallatin County.

The project locations are as
follows: 

Site 1 (Bridger Canyon Road north of Bozeman): Install
advanced radar-activated curve warning signs with flashers on both
sides of the roadway on each entrance to the curve at reference post
(RP) 29. 

Site 2 (Penwell Bridge Road northeast of Belgrade):
Upgrade all advanced curve signing and chevrons from RP 0.5 to RP
4.5. 

Site 3 (Weaver Drive north of Belgrade): Upgrade advanced
curve signing and chevrons on two curves from RP 2.8 to RP 3.5.

Site
4 (Cottonwood Road southwest of Bozeman): Upgrade all advanced curve
signing and chevrons from RP 2.4 to RP 6.0.  

Site 5 (Hyalite Canyon
Road south of Bozeman): Corridor-wide delineation from RP 0.00 to RP
9.95.  

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.
