Proposed Resurfacing Project For US-191 West Of Roy, MT



BILLINGS, MONTANA (October 10, 2019)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and seek public comment
on a proposal to mill and overlay 8.5 miles of US-191, west of Roy,
Montana. 



The proposed project begins 8.5 miles west of Roy, at
reference post 26.6 and extends east for 8.4 miles ending at Roy at
reference post 35.0.



Proposed work will include a digout, milling,
and an overlay. New centerline rumble strips will be installed, and a
seal and cover will be applied. The project will also receive
upgraded pavement markings, signage, and delineation.  



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 2021, 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 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
