The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to rehabilitate about 10.6 miles of Montana Highway 200 northeast of Richey in Dawson and Richland counties. The project begins in Dawson County at the junction with Secondary Highway 254 at reference post 27.8 and extends northeast for 10.6 miles, ending about a quarter mile west of the intersection with Richland County Road 126 at reference post 38.4.

Proposed work includes reconstruction of several sections of road to address poor roadway geometry, rehabilitating the existing pavement, widening the roadway to include 2-foot shoulders, slope flattening, new plant mix surfacing, installing rumble strips and finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement marking, signage and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to provide a safer roadway and reduce maintenance costs.

A target construction date will be determined upon completion of design activities and as funding becomes available. New right-of-way and relocation of utilities may be required. MDT staff will contact all potentially affected landowners prior to performing survey work on their land. Staff will again contact landowners prior to construction regarding property acquisition and temporary construction permits.

For more information, please contact Glendive District Administrator Shane Mintz at (406) 345-8212 or Project Design Engineer Steve Heidner at (406) 3458247.
