Proposed Project Quartz Flats Rest Area

SUPERIOR, MT (July 23, 2020) — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to reconstruct the existing Quartz Flats Rest
Area, approximately 10 miles southeast of Superior.  The project is
located on I 90 at reference post (RP) 58.2 westbound and RP 58.0

Proposed work includes new water and wastewater systems,
expanded parking facilities, and new upgraded building and restroom
facilities.  The purpose of the project is to replace the current
aging facilities with new facilities designed to meet current
standards and future anticipated needs at the sites based on
projected usage and corridor growth.

This project will be delivered
using the Design-Build method and is scheduled for construction in
2021-22.  Access to the adjacent campgrounds will be maintained
during construction.  No additional right-of-way will be required for
this project.

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, Missoula office at PO Box 7039,
Missoula, MT 59807-7039.  Please note that comments are for project
UPN 6875001.
