Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Bridge Preservation Project on U.S.
Highway 89 in Gardiner



GARDINER — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to rehabilitate the bridge carrying U.S.
Highway 89 over the Yellowstone River in Gardiner at reference marker
0.1 in Park County.



Proposed work includes deck milling and concrete
overlay, partial deck replacement for the approach spans, concrete
control joints, and minor sidewalk repairs at the northwest corner of
the bridge. The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the bridge
to extend the service life of the structure and to improve
rideability across the structure.



The project is tentatively
scheduled for construction in 2019, depending on completion of all
project development activities and availability of funding. No new
right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.



For more
information, please contact Butte District Administrator Jeff Ebert
at (406) 494-9625 or Project Design Engineer Tyler Steffan at (406)
444 7800. Members of the public may submit written comments to the
