Pavement Preservation Project For North Joplin Road, Joplin

JOPLIN MONTANA (February 5, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to 
comment on a proposal to improve about 10 miles of North Joplin Road,
going through and north of Joplin. The project begins at the
intersection of US-2 and North Joplin Road and extends north for 10
miles, ending at reference post 10.0.

Proposed work includes
applying a new overlay and chip seal, as well as new signing and
pavement markings.  The purpose of the project is to extend the life
of the pavement and to reduce future maintenance costs. 

Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2021depending on completion
of all project development activities and availability of funding. No
new Right-of-Way will be needed.

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
