MDT Proposes A Resurfacing Project For Montana Highway 59



MILES CITY, MONTANA (December 9, 2019)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to resurface about 5.5 miles of Highway 59,
southeast of Miles City The project begins at reference post 27.8 and
extends south for 5.4 miles ending at reference post 33.2.



Proposed
work includes milling the existing surface, applying a new overlay,
and finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), shoulder rumble
strips, upgraded pavement markings, and signage.  The purpose of the
project is to extend the life of the pavement, reduce maintenance
costs and increase safety.



Typically, pavement preservation projects
of this size and scope are advanced to construction as soon as
possible. A target construction date will be determined 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
