Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Multi-Use Path Construction Project South
of Lame Deer

Lame Deer  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to construct a multi-use path and pedestrian lighting south of Lame
Deer on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. The project is along the
south side of the Bureau of In-dian Affairs (BIA) Route 4028 (Lame
Deer School Access Road) from BIA Route 4 southwesterly to the Lame
Deer High School and Junior High.

Proposed work includes a
0.48-mile-long multi-use path built to Americans with Disabilities
Act stand-ards and pedestrian lighting. The purpose of the project is
to safely route pedestrians, bicyclists, and other non-motorized
transportation users between the existing multi-use path on BIA Route
4 and the Lame Deer High School and Junior High.

The project is
tentatively scheduled for construction in 2018, depending on
completion of all project development activities and availability of
funding.

No new right-of-way or utility relocations are anticipated.
The project is funded with Federal Highway Administration
Transportation Alternatives funds.
