Proposed Safety Improvements On US 93 Near Ronan



Ronan, Montana - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to
install a center left turn lane on about 0.5 miles of US Highway 93,
approximately 5 miles south of Ronan, at the Eagle Pass Trail
intersection. 



The purpose of the project is to improve intersection
safety by providing a safe area for traffic on US 93 to slow down
before making a left turn. 



Construction is tentatively planned for
2024 depending on completion of design and availability of funds. New
right-of-way and relocation of utilities will be required. MDT staff
will contact all affected landowners prior to doing survey work on
their land. Staff will again contact landowners prior to construction
regarding 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
http://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml or in writing to Montana
Department of Transportation, Missoula office at PO Box 7039,
Missoula, MT 59807-7039. Please note that comments are for project
UPN 9614001.



The public is encouraged to contact Missoula District
Administrator Bob Vosen at (406) 523-5802 or Project Design Engineer
Scott Gerken at (406) 444-5446 with questions.
