Proposed Rehabilitation Project For US-212 East Of Busby

Proposed Rehabilitation Project for US-212 east of Busby

Montana (September 4, 2019) - The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to resurface 11.5 miles of US-212 east of
Busby, MT, Bighorn County.

The project begins approximately 1.5
miles east of Busby, at reference post (RP) 27.15 and extends east
for 11.5 miles, ending at the Rosebud County line.

Proposed work
includes digouts and an overlay from RP 27.15 to RP 33.06. From RP
33.06 to RP 38.67, the proposed work includes removing existing
surfacing material, pulverizing, cement-treating the base material,
and placing new pavement.  The project will also receive a seal &
cover, new guardrail, centerline and shoulder rumble strips, pavement
markings, and delineators.  

The purpose of the project is to
address current rutting issues by adding more structure to the
roadway surface. These improvements will extend the life and improve
the safety of the roadway for the traveling public.

The project is
tentatively scheduled for construction in 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
