Project Overview

The Montana Department of Transportation will resurface approximately 6 miles of Montana Highway 69 (MT 69) near Whitehall. The project area begins at the intersection of Whitehall Street and Legion Avenue in Whitehall and proceeds east from town ending at the junction of MT 69 and MT 2.

This preventative maintenance project will extend the life of MT 69 east of Whitehall. In addition to extending the life of this road, the project will also improve the safety of the roadway by upgrading guardrails, painting new pavement markings and improving the signage in the area.
