Bridge Replacement Over Twelve Mile Creek West Of Huntley

Huntley, MT - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to
replace the existing timber bridge over Twelve Mile Creek
approximately 2 miles west of Huntley on Old Highway 312 where it
crosses Twelve Mile Creek. The limits of the project will be based on
the minimum length required to connect the new structure into the
existing roadway. 

Proposed work includes replacing the existing
timber structure over Twelve Mile Creek with a new structure. The
purpose of the project is to replace the existing deficient bridge
with a new structure that will provide capacity for current and
future traffic needs.

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 or in writing to Montana
Department of Transportation, Billings office at PO Box 20437,
Billings, MT  59104-0437. Please note that comments are for project
UPN 9719000.

The public is encouraged to contact Billings District
Administrator Rod Nelson at (406) 657-0229 or Project Design Engineer
Tracy Stoner at (406) 444-7610 for additional information.
