US 287: North of Augusta
Project Numbers: STPP 9-1(21)40 & STPP 9-2(15)48
UPNs: 9840000 & 9722000
The US 287: North of Augusta project is located north of the town of Augusta in Lewis and Clark County and extends north about 16 miles into Teton County toward Choteau. The project will reconstruct, potentially realign segments, and update older portions of US 287. In addition to the reconstruction, the project will include a new bridge over the Sun River, minor approach construction, and irrigation work to accommodate the highway improvements. Safety components planned for the roadway include wider shoulders, slope flattening, and improved alignment. The project may also include new snow fence and/or snow ditches in select locations to help mitigate snow drifting along the highway. The improvements will reduce hazards and improve the condition of the roadway.
The project is in early design stage; a construction date is currently unknown. As the project design progresses, updates will be posted to this site.
