Safety Enhancements Proposed On US 191

BOZEMAN/BIG SKY, Montana (May 22, 2020) — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to install variable message signs at the
entrances of Gallatin Canyon on US 191.

These signs will be used to
inform the travelling public of hazards, traffic incidents and high
priority conditions being observed in the canyon.

Construction is
tentatively planned for 2021 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 affected landowners
prior to doing 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.  Comments may be
submitted online at or
in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Butte office at
PO Box 3068, Butte, MT	59702-3068.  Please note that comments are
