The Jackrabbit – Madison to Main project continues to move forward.

The project team has completed preliminary field work, including geotechnical studies. The next steps include preparing an analysis of alternatives for the project area. This analysis will determine whether the Montana Department of Transportation will build a railroad overpass or underpass to connect to the surrounding roadways.

The project team is committed to moving this effort towards a final design as swiftly as possible.

Our team will be in touch with more updates as these milestones are reached. In the meantime, if you have comments or questions, please feel free to reach out. You can call 406-207-4484 or email Becca at beccaXYZbigskypublicrelationsABCcom.

The public is encouraged to reach out with thoughts and questions at any time by calling 406-207-4484, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by emailing beccaXYZbigskypublicrelationsABCcom.

April 2022

The Jackrabbit – Madison to Main project development continues. Residents may notice workers in the project area over the next few weeks. These workers are conducting geotechnical work, including drilling into the ground to collect samples to identify the composition of the ground beneath and nearby the road. Engineers use this knowledge when designing the new infrastructure. For example, they may determine the need to remove soft soil and replace it with better material during construction.

Short-term lane closures may be required for this work. Please be mindful of workers and changing lane patterns, and reduce speeds as necessary.

Engineers will soon decide whether the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) should build a railroad overpass or underpass. They will then start looking at different alternatives for this structure and how it will connect to the adjacent road facilities in the project limits.
