Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Montana Secondary
Highway 288

Manhattan  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to resurface about 10.1 miles of Montana Secondary Highway 288
(S-288) south of Manhattan through Churchill in Gallatin County. The
project begins at the intersection of Amsterdam Road and S-288 at
reference post 6.1 and extends southeast for 10.1 miles, ending at
the intersection of Montana Highway 84 and S-288 at reference post
16.2.

Proposed work includes cold milling the full width of the
existing surface, applying a new overlay, and finishing with a seal
and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement marking, signage,
delineation, and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to extend
the service life of the highway and take a cost-effective action to
preserve and maintain the existing highway.

The project is
tentatively scheduled for letting in 2017, depending on completion of
all project development activities and availability of funding. No
new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.
