Proposed Resurfacing Project On Montana Highway 2 Near Butte
Butte, MT - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like
to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to
resurface about 8.5 miles of Highway 2, southeast of Butte The
project begins at the Silver Bow County line on the south side of
Pipestone Pass and extends northwest for 8.5 miles ending at the
junction with Harrison Avenue.
Proposed work includes chip seal,
upgraded pavement marking, and guardrail upgrades. The purpose of the
project is to extend the service life of the roadway, provide
additional skid resistance, and take cost-effective action to
preserve and maintain the existing roadway.

tentatively scheduled for construction in 2023, depending on
completion of all project development activities and availability of
funding. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.

partnering with the community. The Montana Department of
