Culvert Replacement Project For Interstate 90 West Of Jens

DRUMMOND, MONTANA (July 23, 2020) — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to replace a damaged culvert under Interstate
90 west of the Jens Interchange (east of Drummond).  The project is
located approximately 5.9 miles east of Drummond, at reference post

Proposed work includes replacing the damaged culvert and
rebuilding the Interstate across the culvert.  To safely replace the
culvert, traffic crossovers will be constructed east and west of the
culvert, and both eastbound and westbound traffic will travel on the
same side of Interstate 90 for approximately 1.0 mile.	The purpose
of the project is to replace the damaged culvert so that access and
traffic capacity needs on I-90 can continue to be maintained.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2021 depending on completion
of design and availability of funds.  Temporary construction permits
and relocation of utilities may 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
any temporary construction permits that are 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 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 9852000.

The public is encouraged to contact Missoula District
Administrator Bob Vosen at (406) 523-5802 or Project Design Engineer
