Montana Department Of Transportation To Construct Sidewalk I

LOCKWOOD, Montana (August 26, 2019)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) will be constructing sidewalk along
approximately 0.76 miles of Becraft Lane in Lockwood.	The project
begins at the intersection of Becraft Lane and Old Hardin Road and
runs east on the north side of Becraft Lane to the intersection of
Becraft Lane and Noblewood Drive.

Work includes construction of
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant concrete sidewalk. 
The purpose of the project is to provide safety and pedestrian
protection that is needed in the Lockwood community.  The sidewalk on
Becraft Lane will remove pedestrians from the roadway and alleviate
current vehicular conflict with pedestrians.

The project is being
funded with Federal Highway Administration Transportation Alternative
funds and Lockwood Pedestrian Safety District funds.  The project is
being constructed by Riverside Contracting, Inc.

Construction is
anticipated between September 9, 2019 and November 29, 2019. 
Sidewalk construction across driveways may, for a short period of
time, limit access to these driveways.	An attempt will be made to
coordinate this activity with homeowners.  Those using Becraft Lane
should anticipate flaggers and lane shifts.
