Resurfacing Project For South 5th & 6th Streets, Missoula

Proposed Resurfacing Project for South 5th & 6th Streets in the City
of Missoula

MISSOULA, MONTANA (December 11, 2019) -The Montana
Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite
the public to comment on a proposal to resurface approximately 1.0
miles of South 5th & 6th Streets in Missoula.  On both routes the
projects will begin at the intersection with Russell Street and
extends east to the intersection with Higgins Avenue.

Proposed work
includes milling the existing surface, applying a new overlay, and
finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement
markings and signage.  The purpose of the project is to provide a
cost-effective action to prolong and preserve the existing pavement. 

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2020 and is
dependent on 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. The 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, Missoula office at PO Box 7039,
Missoula, MT  59807-7039. Please note that comments are for project
UPN 9747000.

The public is encouraged to contact Missoula District
Administrator Bob Vosen at (406) 523-5802 or Project Design Engineer
Nathaniel Walters at (406) 523-5833 for additional information.
