In general, Montana's roads and bridges are funded through a combination of federal (88.5 percent) and state/local (11.5 percent) funding sources. MDT receives no funding from Montana's general fund revenue. Federal road and bridge revenues are generated from the users of our highways through gasoline and diesel fuel taxes and apportioned to states through federal highway legislation.

MDT prioritizes the highest needs across the state while making funding decisions each year.
