Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Construction of Sidewalk Along Round Butte
Road in Ronan



RONAN — The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to construct about 0.85 miles of Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA)-compliant sidewalk along Round Butte Road (Montana Secondary
Highway 211) in north Ronan.



The sidewalk begins just to the east of
Ronan Middle School at reference post 0.15 and extends west along the
north side of Round Butte Road for 0.85 miles to connect with the
existing shared-use path just west of the railroad tracks at
reference post 1.00.



Proposed work includes construction of a 5- to
6-foot-wide concrete or asphalt ADA-compliant sidewalk. The purpose
of the project is to provide safe pedestrian access to Ronan schools,
the post office, St. Luke’s Medical Center, and various businesses.


The project is being funded with Federal Highway Administration
Transportation Alternative funds and is sponsored by the Confederated
Salish and Kootenai Tribes. Construction is tentatively scheduled in
spring of 2021 depending on completion of all project development
activities and availability of funding.
