Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Montana Highway
212 West of Lame Deer



LAME DEER — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to resurface about 3 miles of Highway 212 west
of Lame Deer in Rosebud County. 



The project begins at the Big
Horn/Rosebud county line at reference post 38.7 and extends east for
3.2 miles, ending just west of the Lame Deer roundabout at reference
post 41.9.



Proposed work includes milling the existing surface,
applying a new overlay, and finishing with a seal and cover (chip
seal), upgraded pavement markings, signage and guardrail.



The
purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the roadway and extend the
life of the pavement to provide a safer, smoother road and reduce
maintenance costs.



Typically, pavement preservation projects of this
size and scope are advanced to construction as soon as possible,
generally within two to three years. A target construction date will
be determined upon 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
Glendive District Administrator Shane Mintz at (406) 345-8212 or
Project Design Engineer Megan Cail at (406) 444 6230. Members of the
public may submit written comments to the Montana Department of
Transportation Glendive office at P.O. Box 890, Glendive, MT
