Proposed Project For US 212 East Of Hammond



MILES CITY, MONTANA (January 6, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to resurface about 11 miles of Highway 212,
east of Miles City The project begins at reference post 119.5 and
extends south for 10.8 miles ending at reference post 130.3.


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



Typically, pavement preservation projects
of this size and scope are advanced to construction as soon as
possible, generally within two to three years. 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. The
Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide
ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted
