Road And Bridge Improvements Begin On MT-141 In Mid-August



Helmville, Montana (August 5, 2021)   The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) and LHC, Inc. will begin construction on MT-141
in Powell County in mid-August. The project begins near the northwest
end of Nevada Lake and extends northwest for 12.5 miles ending at the
junction of MT-141 and MT 200. 



The project will improve the roadway
and bridges along roughly 12.5 miles of MT-141. Roadway improvements
include minor bridge upgrades, crack seal, plant mix overlay, and
seal and cover (chip seal). Additionally, the project includes
upgraded pavement markings, signage, and guardrail. The purpose of
the project is to improve the safety, quality, and longevity of the
roadway.



Work will begin in mid-August and be substantially complete
by the end of October.	The traveling public should expect reduced
speeds, single lane traffic controlled with flaggers and/or traffic
signals and delays up to 15 minutes through the work zone. Seal and
cover (chip seal) operations will occur during summer 2022. 



The
Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to remind
motorists to use caution when driving through the construction zone.
Motorists are advised to watch for work crews, heavy equipment, and
reduced speed limits. Posted limits are enforced until signs indicate
the work zone has ended. 



MDT is dedicated to expediting this
project and apologizes for any inconvenience. Travelers are
encouraged to plan ahead and adjust their travel time accordingly for
the duration of the project. For the very latest information on the
