Montana Department of
Transportation Proposes Resurfacing Project for U.S. Highway 93 Near
Stevensville

STEVENSVILLE  The Montana Department of Transportation
(MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal
to resurface about 2.5 miles of U.S. Highway 93 northwest of
Stevensville in Ravalli County. The project begins 0.8 miles south of
the junction with Secondary Highway 269 at reference post 66.0 and
extends north for 2.5 miles, ending 0.5 miles north of the North
Kootenai Creek Road intersection at reference post 68.3.

Proposed
work includes milling the existing surface, applying a new asphalt
overlay, and finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded
pavement markings and signage. The purpose of the project is to 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.

Design Engineer Nathaniel Walters at (406) 444 5833. Members of the
