Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Construction of Multi-Use Path and
Sidewalk in Sidney

Sidney  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to design and build Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant
multi-use path and sidewalk along approximately 0.37 miles of the
north side of 14th Street SE and the west side of 9th Ave SE in
Sidney. The project begins at the intersection of 14th Street SE and
4th Avenue SE at reference post (RP) 0.37 and extends east along 14th
Street SE for 0.28 miles to 9th Avenue SE at RP 0.65. The project
then runs northeast for 0.09 miles along 9th Avenue SE from the
intersection with 14th Street SE at RP 0.00 to 10th Ave SE at RP
0.09.

Proposed work includes construction of ADA-compliant multi-use
path along 14th Street SE and ADA-complaint sidewalk along 9th Avenue
SE. The purpose of the project is to extend the existing multi-use
path to allow additional residents in the southeast end of Sidney as
well as Sidney High School students to realize the full benefits of
the multi-use path. 

An additional safety element of the multi-use
path along 14th Street SE will include piping of the Lower
Yellowstone Irrigation District Lateral D that is currently run as an
open ditch.
