Bozeman

Bozeman  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT)
would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to
upgrade 13.3 miles of guardrail on Interstate 90 east of Bozeman in
Gallatin County. The project begins near the Bear Canyon Interchange
at reference post 313.2 and extends east for 13.3 miles, ending 1.9
miles east of the Hopper Interchange at reference post 326.5.
