Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Montana Highway
200 West of Thompson Falls 

THOMPSON FALLS  The Montana Department
of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to resurface about 4.0 miles of Montana
Highway 200 west of Thompson Falls in Sanders County. The project
begins about 2.9 miles northwest of the junction with Secondary
Highway 471 at reference post 46.2 and extends southeasterly for 4.0
miles, ending at the Thompson Falls city limits at reference post
50.2.

Proposed work includes milling off the upper layer of pavement
and replacing with new pavement, seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded
pavement markings and installing new shoulder rumble strips. In
addition, signing, delineation and guardrail will be upgraded. The
purpose of the project is to enhance the safety of the traveling
public and take a cost-effective action to prolong and preserve the
existing pavement.

The project is tentatively scheduled for
construction in 2019, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. No new
right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.
