WINNETT, MONTANA (November 7, 2019) -The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to comment on the proposed project to reconstruct a portion of Valentine Road located 22 miles north of Winnett in Petroleum County. The project begins at reference post 22.0 and extends north 0.4 miles to reference post 22.4 on the Sage Creek crossing of Valentine Road.
Proposed work will include adding drainage culverts as well as armoring of the roadway and roadside slopes. Right-of-way acquisition and utility impacts are also anticipated. The purpose of the project is to improve drainage and armor this section of the roadway to prevent future damage from flooding as it has washed out multiple times in recent years.
The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2020, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. The project is funded with Federal Highway Administration funds and State matching funds.
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. Please note that comments are for project CN 9745000.
The public is encouraged to contact Billings District Administrator Rod Nelson at (406) 252-4138 or Project Design Engineer Dave Holien at (406) 444‑6118 with questions or for additional information.
