Construction Status - December - Both eastbound and westbound interstate lanes are re-opened to two lanes of traffic. The Alaska Frontage Road between Rock Road and Cameron Bridge is closed. Detours are in-place. Local business access will be maintained. Residential access along Alaska Road will be maintained.
Earthwork operations have begun for the new railroad bridge. Railroad bridge construction will continue throughout the winter months.
Work on the project is winding down for the winter. With that, impacts to travelers will be minimal until Spring 2014. Knife River is dedicated to expediting this project and apologizes for any inconvenience.
Motorists are reminded to watch for work crews and equipment, as well as signs indicating reduced speed limits and detours. Posted limits are enforced until signs indicate that the work zone has ended. Fines double in work zones.
Weekly project updates will appear in the Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Belgrade News and local radio stations.
