Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Reconstruction Project on Montana Highway
1

ANACONDA  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would
like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to
reconstruct about 4  miles of Montana Highway 1 (MT-1) west of
Anaconda in Deer Lodge County. The project begins at North Cable Road
west of Anaconda at reference post 10.1 and extends west for 4.0
miles, ending near the Cable Road approach at reference post 14.1.

Proposed reconstruction includes a center turn lane and
accommodations for a future multi-use path. Approaches will be
consolidated as much as practical. Fencing will also be used to
control access at some locations. The purpose of the project is to
improve the safety and operation of the corridor by improving the
geometrics and managing the access.

The project is currently outside
of the Tentative Construction Plan. Project construction will depend
on completion of all project development activities and availability
of funding. New right-of-way and relocation of utilities will be
required. Staff will again contact landowners prior to construction
regarding property acquisition and temporary construction permits.

For more information, please contact Butte District Administrator
Jeff Ebert at (406) 494-9625 or Project Design Engineer Jennifer
Nelson at (406) 641 2536. Members of the public may submit written
comments to the Montana Department of Transportation Butte office at
P.O. Box 3068, Butte, MT  59702-3068, or online at:
