Montana Department of Transportation Proposes Safety Project South of
Libby



Libby, Montana. (July 31, 2019) - The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to install safety features and widen the
shoulders for about 0.5 miles of US Highway 2 near Libby. The project
begins about 0.1 miles south of northern Terrace View Road at
reference post 38.5 and extends southerly for approximately 0.5
miles, ending at the southern Terrace View Road approach at reference
post 39.0.



Proposed work includes shoulder widening, roadside slope
flattening, replacing guardrail, new shoulder rumble strips, and
signing on US Hwy 2. The purpose of this project is to improve
roadside safety by addressing an identified crash trend at this
location.



The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in
2022, depending on completion of all project development activities
and availability of funding. 

New right-of-way and utility
relocations may be needed.



Members of the public may submit written
comments to the Montana Department of Transportation Missoula office
at PO Box 7039, Missoula, MT  59807-7039 or online at
www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml . Please note that your
