Road Resurfacing And ADA Sidewalk Improvement Great Falls



MDT Proposes Road Resurfacing and ADA Sidewalk Improvement Project in
Great Falls



GREAT FALLS, MONTANA (October 30, 2019)  The Montana
Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite
the public to comment on a proposal to resurface about 1.2 miles of
roadway on Fox Farm Road in Great Falls, MT.  The project begins at
reference post 0.1 which is located just north of Alder Drive and
extends1.2 miles south ending just south of E. Fiesta at reference
post 1.3.



Proposed work includes cold milling, applying a new
overlay, updating some sidewalk American with Disabilities Act (ADA)
ramps, upgrading signing and pavement markings, and finishing with a
seal and cover (chip seal).  The purpose of the project is to
preserve and extend the life of the roadway, smooth the surface,
provide a friction course and bring the features along this segment
of the corridor into compliance with ADA.



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 for this project.
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, Great Falls office at PO Box 1359,
Great Falls, MT  59403-1359. Please note that comments are for
project CN 9759000.
