East of East Helena – East
This project will widen N-8 (US-12/US-287) to provide passing lanes and turning opportunities for a section of roadway between RP 52+1.162 (just east of Diehl Ranch Drive) and RP 55.9 (just east of Spokane Creek Road). This project is in Lewis & Clark and Jefferson County.
The majority of the section will consist of two through lanes in each direction, a center turn-lane and eight-foot shoulders. A free-right turn lane from Spokane Creek road will turn into the new through lane. The work includes grading, gravel, plant mix surfacing, seal & cover, pavement markings, signing, and culvert updates.
Right-of-way acquisition and utility relocation will be required. Construction is tentatively planned for 2021.
