Bozeman, Montana (February 10, 2020) The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to reconstruct curves on Durston Road. The
project is located between RP 2.7 and RP 2.9. at the Aajker Creek
crossing and 0.25 miles east of the intersection with Gooch Hill

The proposed project includes straightening the curves on
Durston Road to address an identified crash trend. 

Construction is
tentatively planned for 2022 depending on completion of design and
availability of funds. New right-of-way and relocation of utilities
will be required. MDT staff will contact all potentially affected
landowners prior to performing survey work on their land. Staff will
again contact landowners prior to construction regarding property
acquisition and temporary construction permits.

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.
