MDT Proposes Project To Rebuild A Portion Of Valentine Road

WINNETT, MONTANA (November 7, 2019) -The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on the proposed project to reconstruct a portion of Valentine
Road located 22 miles north of Winnett in Petroleum County. The
project begins at reference post 22.0 and extends north 0.4 miles to
reference post 22.4 on the Sage Creek crossing of Valentine Road.

Proposed work will include adding drainage culverts as well as
armoring of the roadway and roadside slopes. Right-of-way acquisition
and utility impacts are also anticipated. The purpose of the project
is to improve drainage and armor this section of the roadway to
prevent future damage from flooding as it has washed out multiple
times in recent years.

The project is tentatively scheduled for
construction in 2020, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. The project is
funded with Federal Highway Administration funds and State matching

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, Billings office at PO Box 20437,
Billings, MT  59104-0437. Please note that comments are for project
