Communication with the public is important to MDT and the success of the project. MDT is working closely with the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT), local officials, and critical services including law enforcement, fire, and ambulance to ensure ongoing coverage and services during construction.
The public will be notiﬁed about public involvement opportunities, and construction and traffic activities, at key project milestones throughout the design-build process. MDT will notify the public through the project website, local media, mailings, social media, and email and text notifications.
