Proposed Bridge Replacement Project In Lewistown Area

Lewistown  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like
to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to replace
ten structures along 24 miles of Highway 200, east of Lewistown, and
one structure south of Grass Range on Highway 87. 

Proposed work
includes replacement of structures with new bridges and culverts. The
purpose of the project is to replace aging and deteriorating
structures in poor condition to ensure long-term safety for the
traveling public.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2023-24
depending on completion of design and availability of funds. New
right-of-way and relocation of utilities may be required. MDT
Consultants will contact all affected landowners prior to doing
survey work on their land. Staff will again contact landowners prior
to construction regarding potential 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 or in writing
to Montana Department of Transportation, Billings office at PO Box
20437, Billings, MT  59104-0437. Please note that comments are for
