Proposed Widening Project For US Highway 12 East Of Ingomar



INGOMAR, Montana (December 30, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to update the public on the proposal
to widen five miles of Highway 12, between Ingomar and Vananda. The
project begins at reference post 240.0 and extends southeast for five
miles ending at reference post 245.0.



Proposed work includes
widening the road from 24-ft. to 32-ft by adding 4-ft. shoulders, and
flattening the roadside slopes. The entire road surface will be
finished with a full width seal and cover (chip seal). Upgraded
pavement marking, signage and will be included.  The purpose of the
project is to address an existing run-off-the-road crash trend on
this segment of road.



Construction is tentatively planned for 2022
depending on completion of design and availability of funds.  New
right-of-way and relocation of utilities will likely be required.
Staff will 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
