South of Stevensville Safety Improvements
SF 149 S of Stevensville Safety Improvements
The project, located in Ravalli County on Secondary 269, begins just north of the intersection with North Birch Creek Road at Reference Post 12.0, and it extends north 6.1 miles to the intersection with Pine Hollow Road at Reference Post 18.1.
The proposed work includes widening the existing roadway by 4 feet on both sides of the road, and flattening the roadside slopes. Sections of guardrail will be constructed, rumble strips are being considered, some pipes will be replaced, others will be extended. A new flashing beacon will be placed at Bell Crossing, and the roadway will have a chip seal and new pavement markings and signs.
The purpose of the project is to enhance roadside safety along this route which has an identified trend of road departure crashes.
