Proposed Safety Project For Highway 24 South Of Glasgow



Glasgow, Montana (December 30, 2020)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to update the public on a proposal to
reconstruct about 0.5 miles of Highway 24, south of Glasgow. The
project begins approximately four miles south of Glasgow, at
reference post 72.4 and extends south for  mile ending at reference
post 71.9.



The purpose of the project is to address a crash cluster
at this horizontal curve. Proposed work includes reconstruction of
the horizontal curve with a flatter (safer) cross slope in addition
to slope flattening and shoulder widening. The project will still
include a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement markings, and
signage.



Construction is tentatively planned for 2021 depending on
completion of design and availability of funds.  New right-of-way and
construction permits have been acquired and utility relocation
agreements have been signed.  



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 https://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml 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 9193000.
