Erosion Repair Proposed For US Highway 89 At Two-Medicine



BROWNING MONTANA (March 25, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to repair the riverbank erosion adjacent to
Highway 89  located 12 miles southwest of Browning in Glacier County
on the Blackfeet Reservation. The project is located 1000 feet north
of the Two Medicine River Bridge at milepost 102.



Proposed work
includes installing large angular rock (riprap) along the eroded
bank, topsoil and seeding, and repairing damaged fence.  The purpose
of the project is to stabilize the riverbank and protect the roadway.


Construction is tentatively planned for 2021 depending on completion
of design and availability of funds. New right-of-way and relocation
of utilities may 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.
