Proposed Resurfacing On US 287 Near Ennis, MT

Ennis, Montana - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to
resurface about 6 miles of Highway 287, north of Ennis. The project
begins at the intersection of US 287 and MT 287 and extends north for
6 miles ending near McAllister.

Proposed work includes resurfacing
the existing surface and painting new pavement markings. The purpose
of the project is to rehabilitate the rutting roadway and to extend
the service life of the pavement. 

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 9871000.
