Pablo Safety Improvements

Project Overview

The Pablo Safety Improvements project is a community driven effort to address fatal crashes and serious injury crashes at the intersection of US 93 and Old Highway 93, one mile south of Pablo. The intersection currently requires drivers to cross multiple lanes of high-speed traffic.

Divided highway intersections like the one south of Pablo have an elevated risk of right-angle, T-bone style crashes, especially for drivers attempting to cross all four lanes of traffic. In the last 13-years Montana Highway Patrol records show a total of 15 crashes at the intersection, including 2 fatalities.

MDT is working collaboratively with local stakeholders to decide upon an improved intersection design with the goal of reducing fatal and serious injury crashes.

Timeline

The project is currently in the preliminary design phase and MDT is seeking input on alternative intersection configurations before proceeding with preliminary engineering. Once engineering plans are finalized the project will be bid for construction.
