Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Sidewalk Improvement Project in Butte

BUTTE — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to
notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to construct new
sidewalk and upgrade Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) facilities
along the east side of Stuart Avenue in Butte. The project begins at
the intersection of Stuart Avenue and George Street and extends north
for 850 feet ending at the west entrance of the East Middle School.

Proposed work includes constructing a concrete sidewalk along the
east side of Stuart Avenue and ADA curb ramps at the northeast corner
of the intersection of Stuart Avenue and George Street. The purpose
of this project is to create a continuous pedestrian route between
existing sidewalks in an area where no pedestrian facilities
currently exist. This project is sponsored by the City of Butte and
Butte-Silver Bow County and was selected for funding through MDT’s
Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program.

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 will be needed.

For more
information, please contact Butte District Administrator Jeff Ebert
