Proposed Safety Projects at Malta, Glasgow and Colstrip, Shoulder and
Centerline Rumble Strips



MALTA, GLASGOW, COLSTRIP, MONTANA (February
14, 2020)  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like
to announce and invite the public to  comment on a proposal to
install updated shoulder rumble strips and new centerline rumble
strips on the following highways, US 191 from mile marker 0.8 to 6.9,
Montana 24 from mile marker 8.5 to mile marker 25, and MT 39 from
mile marker 14 to 22 near Colstrip.



Construction is tentatively
planned for the summer of 2020, depending on completion of design and
availability of funds. No new right-of-way or relocation of utilities
