Proposed Resurfacing On Secondary Hwy 205 Near Three Forks

Three Forks, Montana - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT)
would like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal
to resurface about 15 miles of Montana Secondary Highway 205,
northeast of Three Forks. The project begins on the north side of the
Three Forks Interchange and extends east for about 15 miles ending on
the eastside of the Gallatin River Bridge.

Proposed work includes a
chip seal, upgraded pavement marking, and guardrail repair/updates.
The purpose of the project is to extend the service life of the
roadway, provide additional skid resistance, and take action to
preserve and maintain the existing roadway.

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, Butte office at PO Box 3068, Butte, MT 
59702-3068. Please note that comments are for project UPN 9306000.
