Safety Improvement Project Highway 200 East Of Lewistown



MDT Proposes Safety Improvement Project for Montana Highway 200 East
of Lewistown



LEWISTOWN, MONTANA (September 27, 2019) - The Montana
Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and seek
comments on a proposal to reconstruct two curves on Highway 200, east
of Lewistown. The planned curve improvements  are located at
reference post 94.2 and at reference post 96.6.



The proposed project
includes curve reconstruction, 6-foot shoulders, slope flatting, and
installation of curve warning signs. The purpose of the project is to
address previously identified crash trends at these curves and
improve safety for the traveling public.



Construction is tentatively
planned for 2022 depending on completion of the design phase and
availability of funding.  New right-of-way and relocation of
utilities may be required.  MDT staff will contact all affected
landowners prior to doing survey work on their land.  



An important
part of properly planning for future projects 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 http://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml
or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Billings
office at PO Box 20437, Billings, MT  59104-0437. Please note that

questions or for additional information.
