Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Project to Protect the Rock Creek Bridge
Foundations on U.S. Highway 310



ROCKVALE — The Montana
Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public
and seek comments on a proposal to add erosion countermeasures to
Rock Creek Bridge located on U.S. Highway 310 approximately
one-quarter mile south of Rockvale in Carbon County. 



Proposed work
includes adding erosion protection to the existing bridge foundations
that were identified during recent underwater bridge investigations
as having active scour, or soil erosion, surrounding bridge
foundations. 



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



No new right-of-way is
anticipated for this project. Utility relocations are not currently
anticipated.

District Administrator Rod Nelson at (406) 657-0229 or Project Design
Engineer Tracy Stoner at (406) 444 7610. Members of the public may
submit written comments to the Montana Department of Transportation
Billings office at P.O. Box 20437, Billings MT	59104-0437, or online
