Sidney - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is conducting an open house and informational meeting to discuss plans for installation of a roundabout south of Sidney in Richland County. The new roundabout will be located on MT 16 at its intersection with MT 200 and MT 23 at reference post 50.0. The open house will run from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. with a presentation beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 at the Richland County Extension Office, 1499 N. Central Avenue in Sidney, MT. Project team members will be available during the open house and after the presentation to discuss the project.
Community participation is a very important part of the process, and the public is encouraged to attend. Opinion, comments and concerns may also be submitted in writing at the meeting, by mail to Shane Mintz, Glendive District Administrator, MDT, Glendive District office at PO Box 890, Glendive, MT 59330-0890, or online at http://www.mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml
Please note that your comments are for project UPN 8566000 and submit comments by August 6, 2015.
Proposed work includes reconstructing the intersection to include a concrete roundabout to improve safety and promote positive traffic flow, curb and gutter, storm drain, intersection lighting, plant mix surfacing and a seal & cover (chip seal) on each of the 4 legs approaching the roundabout, upgraded pavement markings and signage. The roundabout will be designed large enough to adequately accommodate trucks. The project limits will be established based on the geometry necessary for the development of the roadway transitions for each approach leg of the roundabout intersection.
New right-of-way and relocation of utilities may be required. If new right-of-way is necessary, MDT staff will contact all affected landowners prior to doing survey work on their land to obtain written permission. Staff will again contact landowners prior to construction regarding property acquisition and temporary construction permits.
