Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Montana Highway
200 Southeast of Trout Creek



TROUT CREEK — The Montana
Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public
and seek comments on a proposal to resurface about 16.8 miles of
Montana Highway 200 (MT-200) southeast of Trout Creek in Sanders
County. 



The project begins near the intersection of Cedar Street
and MT-200 in Trout Creek at reference post 29.5 and extends
southeasterly for 16.8 miles, ending 3.9 miles west of Thompson Falls
at reference post 46.3.



Proposed work includes sealing the existing
cracks in the pavement and finishing with a seal and cover (chip
seal). In addition, upgraded pavement marking and guardrail will be
included.  



The purpose of the project is to enhance the safety of
the traveling public and take a cost-effective action to prolong and
preserve the existing pavement. No new right-of-way or utility
relocations will be needed.



The project is tentatively scheduled for
construction in 2020, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding.
