comment on a proposal to resurface approximately 8.4 miles of State
Highway 29. The project begins approximately 4 miles north of Silver

ending at the Junction of MT-41 and MT-2 (Locally known as Cactus

Proposed work includes seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded
pavement markings, signage and guardrail. The purpose of the project
is to extend the service life of the roadway, provide additional skid
resistance, and take a cost-effective action to preserve and maintain
the existing roadway.

The project is tentatively scheduled for
construction in 2020, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. No new
Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be needed.
