Reconstruction Project Planned for a Section of Montana Highway 200 Through Fairview


The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to reconstruct about 1.9 miles of Montana Highway 200, through Fairview, MT in Richland County. The project begins south of Fairview, at reference post (RP) 62.3 and extends through town for 1.9 miles ending at the North Dakota border at RP 64.2. Proposed work will include the following: • At the beginning of the project (RP 62.3), there will be major rehabilitation of the pavement to Second Street in Fairview. Rehabilitation will consist of new plant mix surfacing or concrete pavement, new storm drain system and replacement of existing sidewalks and curbs in poor condition. • From Second Street to the end of the project (RP 64.2) the road will be completely reconstructed. The new asphalt surfacing will be finished with a seal & cover (chip seal) and the road will receive upgraded pavement marking, signage and rumble strips where appropriate. The project is tentatively scheduled for construction on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. At this time, no new right-of-way is anticipated; however relocation of utilities will be required. For more information, please contact Glendive District Administrator Shane Mintz at (406) 345-8212 or Project Design Engineer Steve Heidner at (406) 345 8247. For the hearing impaired, the TTY number is (406) 4447696 or 1-800-335-7592, or call the Montana Relay at 711.
