Construction Begins On Highway 200 Improvements

Jordan, Montana (March 15, 2021)  The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) is launching the first of five phases on a
37-mile reconstruction of Highway 200 between Jordan and Brockway. 

The first phase, known as Little Dry Creek-East, will improve seven
miles of highway between the Little Dry Creek Bridge and the Flowing
Wells Rest Area. Wickens Construction will begin work on this section
of the project this month and continue through the summer. 

200 experiences significant year-round traffic and was not built to
accommodate the large vehicles that frequently travel through the
area, Shane Mintz, Glendive District Administrator said. These
improvements will provide a safer roadway for all users and extend
the life of the highway for many years. 

Updates to the highway
include widening the road to add a six-foot shoulder, rumble strips
on the shoulders and center line, and new signage and striping. 

Drivers can expect single-lane closures, reduced speeds and minor
delays while construction is completed. 

Public input is an
important component in all road projects. Please reach out if you
have questions. For those who would like regular updates, please
