Project Overview

Sign up for construction updates by emailing eddiescornerXYZdowlABCcom or calling 800-337-3430.

The Eddies Corner - E & W project will reconstruct a section of US 87/US 191 through Moore and Eddies Corner. Reconstruction work will occur over nearly eight miles between Lamb Road and the east side of the Ross Fork Bridge, or four miles east of Moore to four miles west of Moore. The reconstruction includes new surfacing, the replacement of a single-span bridge at Big Rock Creek, and additional drainage improvements such as new culverts to reduce flooding in the spring months. These changes will improve safety by providing wider shoulders, rumble strips, new guard rail to reduce snow drifting, approach realignments, and fencing.

The Montana Department of Transportation will provide information regarding detours and the upcoming construction schedule. The current plan includes a half-mile detour that will run on the north side of the current roadway. Throughout the project, motorists can also expect reduced speeds, pilot cars, flaggers, rough roadway surfaces and a width restriction of 16 feet. Please be prepared for possible delays of up to 15 minutes.

The highway is a high-traffic route providing access from Lewistown to Great Falls and is a major corridor between Billings and Great Falls. It is used frequently by large semis and to move agricultural equipment. As you travel through the active work zone, please slow down, follow the posted speed limit, and be on the look-out for construction workers. This will provide anticipated delays of up to 15 minutes. Throughout the project, motorists can also expect reduced speeds, pilot cars, flaggers, rough roadway surfaces and a width restriction of 16 feet.

Construction Update

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) construction project Eddies Corner – E & W is underway. The construction team has completed the bridge over Big Rock Creek. Work continues on various culvert replacements and work on the road surface. Please be prepared for on-site detours, flaggers and pilot cars while the work is being completed.

Eddies Corner - E & W Reclamation Process

The road surfacing phase of the project features “full-depth reclamation”, a process that mixes the pulverized existing asphalt, the underlaying gravel, and new material to make the new road surface. Full-depth reclamation is used when the existing top surface is distressed, but the underlying base course is in good condition and has adequate thickness to provide the required pavement structure. It is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to reuse the base course and allows for less material hauling and waste.

Please drive safely and be conscious of safety through all construction zones. As you travel through the active work zone, please slow down, follow the posted speed limit and be on the look-out for construction workers.
