Proposed Resurfacing Project On Highway 47 South Anaconda

ANACONDA, 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 approximately 6.7 miles of Montana
State Primary Highway 47. The project begins approximately 1 mile
east of Anaconda at the junction with Primary Route 19 at reference
post 0.1 and extends northeasterly for 6.7 miles ending near the Warm
Springs I-90 Interchange at (reference post 6.8).

Proposed work
includes seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement marking, and
signage.  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.

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, Butte office at PO Box 3068, Butte, MT 
59702-3068. Please note that comments are for project UPN 9483000.
