MDT To Hold Public Open House On Malta-South Project June 15



MALTA, Montana - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is
conducting a public open house meeting for a proposal to improve
approximately 9.5 miles of MT Highway 191 in Phillips County. The
project spans from the south end of Malta at the Dodson Canal bridge
to approximately S. Alkali Creek Road. 



The open house will be held
in-person from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on June 15 at the Milk River
Pavilion at 47243 US Highway 2, Malta, MT. Project team members will
be available to discuss the project. Members of the public are
encouraged to come at any time to visit exhibits and discuss the
project. 



More information may be found at the project web page:
http://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/maltasouth. 



Proposed work includes
widening the roadway to 36 feet, pavement rehabilitation and
intermittent reconstruction to address dips and rises in the roadway,
bridge end pavement replacement, multi-use path from Secondary 363 to
Malta, new guardrail and culverts, and snow slopes. 



New
right-of-way and relocation of utilities will be required. MDT staff
and their consultants will contact all affected landowners as a
component of the Public Involvement Plan for this project. Staff will
again contact landowners prior to construction regarding property
acquisition and temporary construction permits.



An important part of
properly planning for future projects is partnering with the
community. MDT welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on
the proposed project.



The public is encouraged to contact Nik
Griffith at nikg@strategies360.com or 406-868-3602 with questions or
