Proposed Pavement Preservation Southeast Of Browning

Browning, MT - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to
improve about 3.5 miles of US Highway 2, southeast of Browning. The
project begins at the intersection 8th Avenue SE and extends
southeast for 3.5 miles ending .75 miles east of the US Highway 89

Proposed work includes crack sealing the new and
existing cracks, applying a new asphalt overlay, and finishing with a
chip seal. Pavement markings and signing will be upgraded, and
centerline and shoulder rumble strips will be recut. The BNSF bridge
deck will also be sealed. The purpose of the project is to preserve
the life of the 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
