The Eddies Corner - E & W project will reconstruct a section of US 87/US 191 through Moore and Eddies Corner. Reconstruction work is in-process over nearly eight miles between Lamb Road and the east side of the Ross Fork Bridge, or four miles both east and 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 construction is being completed by Riverside Contracting, Inc.
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.
