Proposed I-90 Bridge Deck Rehabilitations, Deer Lodge Area

Proposed I-90 Bridge Deck Rehabilitations,  Deer Lodge Area

LODGE,	MONTANA (January 24, 2020)   The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to rehabilitate the bridge decks, provide
guardrail enhancements, and other minor safety improvements for 11
bridges at 5 locations along the I-90 corridor, ranging between 5 and
20 miles south of Deer Lodge. The project begins at Sager Lane at I
90 reference post 191.9 and extends south to include bridges at
Racetrack Road, Perkins (Huffman) Lane, Garnett Way, and ends at
Silverbow Creek (Clark Fork River) at I-90 reference post 205.8.

Proposed work includes bridge deck milling, crack sealing, and
placing an overlay at several locations.  The purpose of the project
is to provide rehabilitative treatments to correct the deterioration
of the bridge decks of eleven structures.  This rehabilitation is
needed to protect the concrete decks and extend the useful life of
the bridges.  Concurrently with the rehabilitation work, roadside
safety features (such as guardrail, bridge rail, and drainage
maintenance) of the bridges will be reviewed and enhanced as
warranted to improve traffic safety.

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 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
