Bridge Rehabilitation Project, In Yellowstone County

BILLINGS, MONTANA (December 5, 2019) - The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to rehabilitate 10 bridges within the
Interstate 94 corridor in Yellowstone County. The bridges are located
between mile posts 14 and 21, starting at Ballantine and continuing
to approximately 2.5 miles west of Pompeys Pillar.

Proposed work
includes resurfacing or sealing the existing bridge decks, upgrading
the bridge rail and roadway guardrail, replacement of bridge deck
joints, deck drainage improvements, and upgrades to the adjacent
roadway and signing. The purpose of the project is to repair
deteriorated elements of each bridge to extend their service life.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2021,
depending on the completion of all 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
