Safety is Always in Session: Back-to-School Reminders for Motorists

Montana’s schools are back in session, which means many children are walking, bicycling, or riding a school bus to and from their destination. MDT would like to remind motorists to always be attentive and alert while driving, to share the road, and to obey all traffic laws as school days bring school buses and increased traffic during school start and end times. Make sure you understand and follow Montana’s school bus laws. Yellow flashing lights indicate children are preparing to load or unload, and motorists should be prepared to stop. Red flashing lights indicate children are loading or unloading, and motorists MUST stop at least 30 feet from the school bus and wait until red lights are no longer flashing. Together, we can help keep our students safe on their journey! Learn more about the goal of Vision Zero and school bus safety.

Make a Sober Ride Part of Your Labor Day Plans

For many Montanans, Memorial Day weekend kicks off the start of summer travel, culminating with Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, these summer months can also be some of the deadliest on Montana’s roads due to increased motor vehicle crashes. As part of a nationwide “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” mobilization running from August 15 through September 6, 2022, law enforcement agencies and the Montana Highway Patrol (MHP) will be increasing patrols to watch for and stop impaired drivers on Montana’s roadways. Before you make plans to travel for Labor Day weekend, plan for safe, sober transportation and insist your friends and family do the same. Remember to always buckle up before you go, as using your seat belt is your best defense against serious injury or death in the event you’re in a crash. This is a Vision Zero Message from the Montana Department of Transportation. Learn more about the goal of Vision Zero and impaired driving prevention.

100 Deadliest Days: A Reminder to Stay Safe and Vigilant in Your Summer Travels

For many Montanans, Memorial Day weekend kicks off the start of summer travel, culminating with Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, these summer months can also be some of the deadliest on Montana’s roads due to increased motor vehicle crashes. This period is known nationally as the "100 Deadliest Days of Summer," and has historically represented an increase in crashes and crash fatalities on our roadways due to greater traffic volumes and clear travel conditions that lower drivers' guards. Before you make plans to travel this summer, commit to safe, lawful behavior and remain vigilant in sharing Montana's roadways with all system users. Never operate a motor vehicle while impaired. If you're driving a vehicle, buckle up before you go and insist your friends and family do the same. Using your seat belt is your best defense against serious injury or death in the event you’re in a crash. This is a Vision Zero Message from the Montana Department of Transportation.

100 Deadliest Days: A Reminder to Stay Safe and Vigilant in Your Summer Travels

For many Montanans, Memorial Day weekend kicks off the start of summer travel, culminating with Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, these summer months can also be some of the deadliest on Montana’s roads due to increased motor vehicle crashes. This period is known nationally as the "100 Deadliest Days of Summer," and has historically represented an increase in crashes and crash fatalities on our roadways due to greater traffic volumes and clear travel conditions that lower drivers' guards. Before you make plans to travel this summer, commit to safe, lawful behavior and remain vigilant in sharing Montana's roadways with all system users. Never operate a motor vehicle while impaired. If you're driving a vehicle, buckle up before you go and insist your friends and family do the same. Using your seat belt is your best defense against serious injury or death in the event you’re in a crash. This is a Vision Zero Message from the Montana Department of Transportation.

Construction is moving forward now on MDT's Anaconda MT 1 Pavement Preservation project, which will preserve and extend the service life of approximately seven miles of roadway and five bridges on MT 1 from Anaconda to the I 90 interchange. The project's duration is estimated to be about three months in 2022, with the seal and cover to be completed in summer 2023. Traffic delays will be kept to a minimum.

As roadwork gets underway, motorists should note that a one-day closure is scheduled on Wednesday August 3 for the westbound off-ramp at the I 90/MT 1 interchange, so crews with Pavement Maintenance Services can make guardrail improvements. The ramp will be opened up again at the end of the work shift. Detour message boards are planned to be in place by Friday July 29 alerting the public to the closure and to use alternate routes, which are at Gregson/Fairmont Exit 211 and Warm Springs Exit 201.

Along the seven-mile project route, road crews have set up traffic control devices, are installing temporary concrete barrier rail, and have begun bridge rehabilitation work in the construction zone. Road preservation will include new chip seal, pavement markings and skid-resistant features. Safety improvements include replacing guardrail that is no longer industry compliant.

As work proceeds, traffic controls will be in place through the construction area, including a 35-mph speed limit. Motorists should expect minor delays and are urged to drive with care and watch for workers and equipment as they move through the work area. MDT expects at least one lane of MT 1 will be open throughout the project, except for the brief closures at I 90 and MT 1 to upgrade guardrails.

Construction is scheduled to run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The Montana Department of Transportation thanks you for your patience. The project is important to maintain long-term traffic flow and incorporate safety improvements on the road and bridges on this stretch of the MT 1 travel corridor.

Construction is making good progress this week on MDT's Deer Lodge Area Bridges Rehabilitation project, which is preserving and extending the service life of 11 bridges on I 90 south of Deer Lodge. Crews with COP Construction are continuing their work on bridge structures at Sager Lane (near 192 mile mark), Race Track overpass (near 195 mile mark), Huffman Lane (near 200 mile mark), Warm Springs (near 201 mile mark), and Silver Bow Creek (near 206 mile mark). Bridge rehabilitation and improvements include repairs to deck and substructure concrete, deck milling with a concrete overlay and crack sealing, guardrail replacements, and other upgrades.

Motorists should note that a detour is in place at the Race Track overpass bridge and is now expected to continue through the week of August 1, as crews complete bridge deck resurfacing at this location. On ramps and off ramps are open at the interchange, but the overpass bridge is temporarily closed. During this period, signage is directing traffic to follow the appropriate routes and move with care past the construction zone.

Traffic controls remain in place through all the work areas, including a 16-foot wide-load restriction and 35-mph or 55-mph posted speed limits, depending on the level of construction activity. Drivers should expect minor delays and are urged to proceed with care and watch for workers and equipment throughout the construction zone. At least one lane of traffic is expected to stay open traveling in both directions for the duration of the project. The Montana Department of Transportation thanks you for your patience.

Roadwork is scheduled to run from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. The project is expected to take about 5 months to complete, and is essential for maintaining long-term traffic flow and incorporating safety improvements on the bridges along this important travel corridor.
