of Transportation Proposes Safety Improvements at Intersection of
U.S. Highway 93 and South Kootenai Creek Road
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify
the public and seek comments on a proposal to improve safety at the
intersection of South Kootenai Creek Road and U.S. Highway 93 (US-93)
west of Stevensville in Ravalli County.
The project begins on US-93
approximately 1 mile west of Stevensville at reference post 65.88 and
ends at reference post 66.10.
Proposed work includes building a
separate bridge for the multi-use path to the west of US-93 and
removing the handrail from the highway bridge which is obstructing
visibility. The purpose of the project is to reduce crashes by making
it easier for drivers on US-93 and South Kootenai Creek Road to see
other cars at the intersection.
The project is tentatively scheduled
for construction in 2021, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. No new
right-of-way will be needed but utility relocations may be required.
For more information, please contact Missoula District Administrator
Ed Toavs at (406) 523-5802 or Project Design Engineer Scott Gerken at
(406) 444 5446. Members of the public may submit written comments to
