Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has regularly sought community input regarding this project.
A Community Meeting was held on April 13, 2009 regarding requests that MDT install a guardrail along the west shoulder of US 191 between the Big Sky Spur and the Ophir School. The intention of the guardrail is to provide separation of the highway and a bicycle/pedestrian path.
Community Meetings were conducted in June, 2008 to make residents aware of the specific locations where work will take place, the phased project schedule, and how to obtain updated information about traffic and road conditions while construction is in progress. Community liaison and support will be available throughout construction.
Hearings conducted in 2006 in conjunction with the development of the Environmental. Assessment included an official public comment process regarding these projects.
