MDT Proposes A Resurfacing Project For MT Highway 23 Near Sidney, MT
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to resurface about 4.7 miles of MT Highway 23, east of Sidney, MT in Richland County. The project begins east of the intersection with Secondary 261, at reference post (RP) 2.8 and extends east for 4.7 miles ending on the Montana / North Dakota border at reference post 7.5.
Proposed work includes fixing dips in the pavement, applying a new overlay, installing rumble strips, and finishing with a seal & cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement marking, signage and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to extend the service life of the highway and take a cost-effective action to preserve and maintain the existing highway. The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2015, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding.
No new Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be needed.
