Proposed Roadway Resurfacing Project On Highway US 2

Proposed Roadway Resurfacing Project on Highway US 2

Montana (May 13, 2020) — The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to announce and seek public comment on a proposal to
resurface about 11.6 miles of Highway on US 2, from west of Chester
to the Liberty County line. The project begins west of Chester at 
reference post 321.0 and extends east for 11.6 miles ending at the
Liberty County Line at reference post 332.6.

Proposed work includes
crack seal, and finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded
pavement marking and signage.  These improvements will prevent future
pavement deterioration, extend the life of the roadway, provide a
friction course, and improve the safety of the roadway for the
traveling public. 

The project is tentatively planned for 2021
depending on completion of all project development activities and
availability of funding.  

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 or in writing to
Montana Department of Transportation, Great Falls office at PO Box
1359, Great Falls, MT  59403-1359.  Please note that comments are for
project UPN 9751000.

The public is encouraged to contact Great Falls
District Preconstruction Engineer Steve Prinzing, or Project Design
Engineer Christie McOmber at (406) 454 5880 with questions or for
additional information.
