Montana Department Of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Pr

SCOBEY  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to
notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to resurface about
11 miles of Highway 13, south of Scobey. The project begins  mile
inside the northern border of the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, at
reference post 39.23 and extends north for 11.27 miles ending at the
beginning of the existing curb and gutter near the southern Scobey
city limits at reference post 50.50. The reservation border is at
reference post 39.76.

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

The purpose of
the project is to extend life of the pavement and reduce maintenance

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.
