Proposed Slide Repair On I-15 In Great Falls



GREAT FALLS, MONTANA (February 5, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to repair about 0.3 miles of the Highway I-15
southbound ditch and slopes, on the southwest side of Great Falls in
Cascade County. The ditch grading project begins at RP 279.2 and
proceeds south to RP 278.8. The project is located within the urban
limits of Great Falls at the southwest bridge end of the I-315 Spur
structure.



The purposed of the project is to stabilize a slide area,
create a drainage system for the seepage of water and repair damage
adjacent to the bridge abutment slope. It is tentatively set for
construction in Fall of 2020. The purpose of this project is to
repair and stabilize the fill slopes and better mitigate and control
subsurface runoff. 



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



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.
