Proposed Resurfacing Project On Montana Highway 69 Whitehall

Whitehall - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like
to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to
resurface about 6 miles of Highway 69, in Whitehall. The project
begins at the intersection of Whitehall Street and Legion Avenue and
extends east ending near the flashing light at the junction of MT 69
and Secondary Route 359.

Proposed work includes milling the existing
surface, applying a new overlay, and finishing with a chip seal. The
project also includes new pavement markings, limited curb
replacement, installation of new roadway signs, and guardrail
repair/updates. The purpose of the project is to extend the service
life of the roadway, provide additional skid resistance, and take a
cost-effective action to preserve and maintain the existing 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
Department of Transportation, Butte office at PO Box 3068, Butte, MT 
59702-3068. Please note that comments are for project UPN 9740000.

The public is encouraged to contact Butte District Administrator
William Fogarty at (406) 494-9635 or Project Design Engineer Joe
Walsh at (406) 494-9622 for additional information.
