Proposed Resurfacing Project For US Highway 93 North Of Miss



MISSOULA, MONTANA (March 4, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite	the public to
comment on a proposal to resurface about 1.0 mile of Highway 93,
north of Desmet Interchange. The project begins just north of Desmet
Interchange, at reference post 0.0 and extends north for 1.0 mile.


Proposed work includes replacing the top layer of existing pavement
on the southerly 0.1 mile, followed by a crack seal, seal and cover
(chip seal) along the entire project. Other work will include
upgraded pavement markings, signage and shoulder rumble strips. The
purpose of the project is to preserve the existing pavement to extend
the service life and enhance roadside safety.



The project is
tentatively scheduled for construction in 2021, depending on
completion of all project development activities and availability of
funding. No new Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be needed.


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. Comments may be submitted online at
http://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml or in writing to Montana
Department of Transportation, Missoula office at PO Box 7039,
