The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT), in partnership with Hi-Tech Rockfall, announces a maintenance project occurring 12 miles west of Libby on US Highway 2 (US 2), this summer. Construction will include rock scaling and installation of rockfall mitigation structures. Traffic control will be present, and drivers will be directed to one lane through the work zone area. Construction will take place for a few weeks. Updates will be provided as work approaches.
The purpose of this project is to enhance roadway safety features by repairing the existing rockfall structure and removing potentially hazardous unstable rock material. In addition, work will include cleaning out the roadside ditch.
A map of the project area is included below.
Drivers can anticipate 10 – 15 minutes of delay when traveling through the work zone.
