Proposed Pavement PreservationProject For Green Meadow DR

Helena, Montana (January 11, 2021)   The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to
comment on a proposal to improve 3 miles of Green Meadow Drive, north
of Helena.  The project begins the intersection of Green Meadow Drive
and Custer Avenue and extends for 3 miles ending at the intersection
of Sierra Road.  

Proposed work includes milling off the existing
pavement and replacing it with new asphalt.  The bridge decks over
Ten Mile Creek and the Helena Valley Canal will be sealed and all
guardrail will be replaced.  The new pavement will be chip sealed and
new signing and pavement markings will be installed.  The purpose of
this pavement preservation project is to extend the life of the
roadway with minimal investments and disruption.

The project is
tentatively scheduled for construction in 2022, 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, Great Falls office at PO Box
1359, Great Falls, MT  59403-1359.  Please note that comments are for
project UPN 9754000.

The public is encouraged to contact Great Falls
