Proposed Resurfacing On Interstate 90 West Of Drummond

Drummond, 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 Interstate 90, west of Drummond in
Granite County. The project begins about 3 miles west of the
Bearmouth Interchange and extends east for 15 miles, ending
approximately 3 miles west of the Drummond Interchange.

work includes removing the upper layer of pavement and replacing with
new pavement (in the passing lane and part of the inside shoulder),
crack sealing, and finishing with a chip seal and fog seal of the
entire roadway. In addition, pavement markings and shoulder rumble
strips will be upgraded. The purpose of the project is to extend the
life of the pavement and provide a more comfortable ride for the
traveling public.

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, Missoula office at PO Box 7039,
Missoula, MT 59807-7039. Please note that comments are for project
UPN 9860000.
