Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Safety Improvements on Highway Systems
Near Missoula

MISSOULA  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to install safety improvements on U.S. Highway 93 (US-93), U.S.
Highway 12 (US-12) and East Broadway Street/Montana Highway 200
(MT-200). The proposed project includes the following work at three
sites:

 Site 1 (North of Lolo on US-93 from reference post [RP]
84.0 to RP 84.8): Install centerline rumble strips and replace
striping on both sides of two-way left-turn lane.

 Site 2 (West of
Lolo on US-12 from RP 30.0 to RP 32.4): Install centerline and
shoulder rumble strips and add curve signing.

 Site 3 (East
Broadway/MT-200 from RP 1.65 to RP 1.92): Install intersection
conflict warning system, with signing, for the eastbound I-90
off-ramps of the East Missoula Interchange.

The purpose of the
project is to help reduce crossover and roadway departure crashes and
to help reduce intersection related crashes.

The project is
tentatively scheduled for construction in the spring of 2019,
depending on completion of all project development activities and
availability of funding.

No new right-of-way or utility relocations
will be needed.
