Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Montana Highway
200 West of Dixon in Sanders County 

Dixon  The Montana Department
of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek
comments on a proposal to resurface about 9.8 miles of Montana
Highway 200 (MT-200) west of Dixon. The project begins about 3.1
miles east of the Secondary Highway 382 junction near Perma at
reference post 98.7 and extends easterly for 9.8 miles, ending at the
intersection of West Street and MT-200 in Dixon at reference post
108.5. 

Proposed work includes crack sealing, seal and cover (chip
seal), upgraded pavement markings, shoulder rumble strips and a
bridge deck crack seal. 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.
