Proposed Resurfacing Project For US 212 East And West Of Bus

BILLINGS, Montana (September 4, 2019) - The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to overlay about 8.3 miles of US 212, east and
west of Busby, MT, Bighorn County. 

The project begins 6.6 miles
west of Busby, at reference post 18.8 and extends east for 8.3 miles
ending approximately 1.5 miles east of Busby at reference post 27.1.

Proposed work includes digouts, crack sealing, and an overlay. The
project will also replace centerline and shoulder rumble strips,
upgraded pavement markings, signage, and guardrail.  

The purpose of
the project is to preserve and extend the life of the existing
asphalt surfacing and to improve the safety of the roadway for the
traveling public.

The project is tentatively scheduled for
construction in summer of 2020, depending on completion of all
project development activities and availability of funding. No new
Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be needed.

An important
part of properly planning for the future is partnering with the
community. Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public
to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may
be submitted online at
or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Billings
office at PO Box 20437, Billings, MT  59104-0437. Please note that
comments are for project CN 9771000.
