The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and Riverside Contracting are making pavement preservation improvements to Huffine Lane/West Main Street in Bozeman. The project area begins at the Huffine Lane with Jackrabbit Lane intersection, known as Four Corners, and proceeds east for approximately six miles, ending near the intersection of West Main Street and 19th Avenue in Bozeman.
Planned improvements include:
- Resurfacing Huffine Lane/West Main Street between the 19th Avenue intersection and Fowler Avenue.
- Four digouts replacing surfacing materials at especially degraded parts of the roadway near the West Main Street/19th Avenue intersection.
- Crack sealing Huffine Lane between Fowler Avenue and Jackrabbit Lane.
- Applying a seal and cover (chip seal), fog seal, and new pavement markings to the entire project area.
Why is the project needed?
This project is a routine maintenance project that provides a cost-effective plan to extend the service life of the road by preserving the existing pavement. The driving surface on this stretch of road has only received minor maintenance in the past decade and needs improvement.
Stay Informed During Construction
Communication with the public is important to MDT and the success of the project. The community will be notified about public involvement opportunities, and construction and traffic activities, at key project milestones throughout the construction process. MDT will notify the public through the project website, local media, mailings, social media, and email and text notifications.
Current construction information and road conditions can be found on the MDT Travel Info App.
