Proposed Resurfacing Project For Montana Highway 326

ALZADA, MONTANA (October 16, 2020) — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to resurface about 1.7 miles of Highway 326,
south of Alzada. The project begins at the Montana-Wyoming border and
extends north for about 1.7 miles ending at the intersection with US
Highway 212.

Proposed work includes applying a new overlay and
finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement
markings, and signage. Chip seal treatments are intended to save the
existing asphalt surface before it deteriorates to a point that it
would require reconstruction or replacement. Pavement preservation
projects also help preserve Montana roads for longer periods of time
and for less money than other replacement options. 

pavement preservation projects of this size and scope are advanced to
construction as soon as possible. The project is tentatively
scheduled for construction in 2021, depending on completion of all
project development activities and availability of funding. No new
Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be 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, Glendive office at PO Box 890,
Glendive, MT  59330-0890.  Please note that comments are for project
UPN 9853000.
