Proposed Bridge Rehabilitation On Montana Avenue Overpass



Billings, MT - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to do
preservation work on the Montana Avenue Overpass structures. The two
viaduct bridges are located on Montana Avenue (NH-113) in Billings.
These structures cross over the BNSF/MRL railroad, westbound lanes of
State Avenue, Access Street and an unnamed side street. 



Proposed
work includes repairing or replacing deck joints and minor deck
surface repairs. The purpose of the project is to seal the bridge
deck joints to prevent deicer from leaking through onto the beams and
other bridge components below the deck.



The project is tentatively
planned for construction in 2023, depending on completion of all
project development activities and availability of funding.  New
right-of-way and utility relocations are not anticipated at this
time. 



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
http://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml 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 9913000.



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.
