The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is studying a roadway reconstruction project for Secondary Highway 292 (Whitefish Stage Road) between West Reserve Drive and Montana Highway 40 (MT-40). The purpose of the study is to determine the scope and limits of a future reconstruction project, which will provide an improved roadway that enhances mobility, safety, and long-term viability of the roadway.
The proposed project will analyze improvements including widening the existing roadway, flattening side slopes, and improving horizontal and vertical alignments. Safety projects have recently been completed within the study area and will not be evaluated for reconstruction.
Project Location Map
The project study limits begin at reference post 0.5 north of the intersection with West Reserve Drive and extend north to reference post 9.3 at the intersection with MT-40.
The study is currently scheduled for completion by December 2019. A final design and construction schedule will be determined following completion of the study.
