LEWISTOWN, MONTANA (September 27, 2019) – The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and seek comments on a proposal to reconstruct two curves on Highway 200, east of Lewistown. The planned curve improvements are located at reference post 94.2 and at reference post 96.6.
The proposed project includes curve reconstruction, 6-foot shoulders, slope flatting, and installation of curve warning signs. The purpose of the project is to address previously identified crash trends at these curves and improve safety for the traveling public.
Construction is tentatively planned for 2022 depending on completion of the design phase and availability of funding. New right-of-way and relocation of utilities may be required. MDT staff will contact all affected landowners prior to doing survey work on their land.
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.
