Proposed Resurfacing Project Secondary Hwy 246 W. Of Glasgow







MDT Proposes Resurfacing Project for Secondary Highway 246 West of
Glasgow



GLASGOW, MONTANA (November 18, 2019)  The Montana
Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite
the public to comment on a proposal to resurface about 7 miles of
Secondary Highway 246, northwest of Glasgow. The project begins in
Glasgow at the intersection of 6th Street S and 1st Avenue S
(reference post 0.0) and extends west for 7.0 miles ending at the
intersection of Long-Sukut Rd. (reference post 7.0).



Proposed work
includes milling the existing surface, applying a new overlay and
finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal). Centerline rumble
strips, upgraded pavement markings, and signage are also included. 
Centerline rumble strips will be installed outside the Glasgow city
limits. The purpose of the project is to extend the life of the
pavement, reduce maintenance costs and increase safety.



A tentative
construction date of 2021 has been scheduled dependent upon
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, Glendive office at PO Box 890,
