Trout Creek, MT 59874
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is proposing to rehabilitate the Montana Highway 200 Bridge over the Clark Fork River, near Trout Creek, to increase the long-term viability of the facility. The goal of the project is to repair, rehabilitate, or replace the bridge deck due to its deteriorated condition. Additional repairs include new bridge rail, spot painting of the riveted existing steel girders, miscellaneous structural repairs, and new approach guardrail. In addition to bridge rehabilitation, the project will include utility coordination, environmental considerations, traffic management planning, and roadway approach work near the bridge ends.
Collaboration and coordination will be critical throughout project development, as it will be a challenge to identify constructible solutions while minimizing disruption to traffic during construction. Accordingly, MDT has determined that Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) is the best project delivery method.
Project Location Map
The project is located on Montana Highway 200 (MT-200), in Sanders County, approximately one mile northwest of Trout Creek. The project limits are approximately RP 27.92 to RP 28.43. The bridge crosses the Clark Fork River (NBI structure number P00006028+01091).
The project design is scheduled to be complete in late 2019. Construction is anticipated to begin in late spring 2020 and be completed in late summer 2020.
Communication with the local and traveling public is a priority for MDT. We understand this project will impact the community. MDT has been meeting with key community organizations and businesses to inform, educate and address questions prior to construction. Your comments are appreciated as MDT develops the final design plans for construction.
