Project Overview

NH 1-2(55)417
UPN 9221000

This project will reconstruct 6.9 miles of US 2 from milepost 417.0, Eight Mile Road (2.1 miles east of Zurich) to milepost RP 424.0 (just east of Thirty Mile Road and west of Harlem). Passing lanes will be included between milepost 417 and 419. This project is in Blaine County and is part of the US 2 Havre to Fort Belknap Corridor Study.

The proposed work includes including grading, gravel, plant mix surfacing, seal & cover, pavement markings, signing, and culverts. The project will incorporate two 12’ travel lanes, 8’ shoulders, passing lanes, turning lanes, and flatter roadway side slopes.

The improvements are proposed to provide an efficient, safe highway that meets current design standards. The operational efficiency and safety of the highway will be increased by the widening and added turning and passing lanes.
