Quartz Flats Rest Area
The Montana Department of Transportation is improving the Quartz Flats Rest Areas on Interstate 90 between Superior and Alberton. The rest area serves travelers year round, and is the gateway to the U.S. Forest Service Quartz Flat campground during the summer.
The planned improvements include:
- Reconstructing rest area buildings
- Increasing wastewater system capacity
- Improving water treatment systems
- Reconstructing parking lot to increase capacity
The Quartz Flats Rest Area was originally built in 1967 and rehabilitated in 1989. The facilities are showing signs of wear and tear and are designed for lower traffic volumes. The improvements will provide new facilities, reduce maintenance costs, and prevent wear and tear.
