Montana Department of
Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for Interstate 90 West of
Drummond 

DRUMMOND  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT)
would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to
resurface about 15.2 miles of Interstate 90 west of Drummond in
Granite County. The project begins about 3.3 miles west of the
Bearmouth Interchange at reference post 134.8 and extends easterly
for 15.2 miles, ending approximately 3.4 miles west of the Drummond
Interchange at reference post 150.0.

Proposed work includes milling
off the upper layer of pavement and replacing with new pavement (in
isolated sections), crack seal, seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded
pavement markings and installing new inside 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.
