Billings Area Highlights

BILLINGS, MONTANA (October 10, 2019) — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and seek public comment on a proposal to mill and overlay 8.5 miles of US-191, west of Roy, Montana.

The proposed project begins 8.5 miles west of Roy, at reference post 26.6 and extends east for 8.4 miles ending at Roy at reference post 35.0.

Proposed work will include a digout, milling, and an overlay. New centerline rumble strips will be installed, and a seal and cover will be applied. The project will also receive upgraded pavement markings, signage, and delineation. 

The purpose of the project is to preserve and extend the life of the existing asphalt surfacing and to improve the safety of the roadway for the traveling public.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2021, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. No new Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be needed.

An important part of properly planning for future projects is partnering with the community. Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted online at http://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Billings office at PO Box 20437, Billings, MT  59104-0437.
