US 2 - Brockton East

Overview

Brockton project map image This project will reconstruct a 13.5 mile segment of US Highway 2 in Roosevelt County, Montana. The principal arterial is almost entirely on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation and wholly within a designated Economically Distressed Area. The current configuration is 12-foot lanes with 3 foot shoulders, most of which was designed circa 1956. This project would reconstruct the two-lane configuration to current standards. Given the age and condition of the roadway, the alternative is to widen and resurface the segment, which would be inconsistent with growing needs of residents, commercial traffic, and the touring public.

This remote, rural area is reliant on basic highway systems for quality of life and economic functioning. People here routinely travel long distances for necessities – food, work, health care, emergency and other essential services.

Goal

Reconstruction of the highway to new standards and improve safety.
