Erosion Repair On Rosebud Creek Road South Of Rosebud

MDT Proposes Erosion Repair on Rosebud Creek Road South of Rosebud

ROSEBUD, MONTANA (October 29,2019) - The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to repair the erosion adjacent to Secondary
Highway 447 at Reference Post (RP) 9.0 and RP 15.9. The two sites are
located 9 miles and 15.9 miles respectively south of Rosebud. 

Proposed work at RP 9.0 includes installation of a riprap retaining
wall on the west side of the highway to prevent further encroachment
of Rosebud Creek toward the highway.  Proposed work at RP 15.9
includes installation of a drop structure at the outlet end of a
drainage culvert to dissipate energy and stop the downstream head cut
from progressing toward the highway.  The work at both sites will be
adjacent to the highway and is expected to be completed within
existing MDT right-of-way.  The purpose of the project is to protect
the highway from impacts due to erosion. The letting date of this
project is based upon completion of project development activities
and availability of funding.

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 or in writing to Montana
Department of Transportation, Glendive office at PO Box 890,
Glendive, MT  59330-0890. Please note that comments are for project
CN 9804000.

The public is encouraged to contact Glendive District
Administrator Shane Mintz at (406) 345-8212 or Project Design
Engineer Jim Frank at (406) 345 8214 with questions or for additional
project information.
