POPLAR - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to resurface about 13 miles of U.S. Highway 2 (US-2) west of Brockton in Roosevelt County.

The project begins at the east edge of Poplar at reference post 613.26 and extends east for 12.9 miles, ending near the east edge of Brockton at reference post 626.13.

Proposed work includes milling the existing surface, applying a new overlay, and finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), culvert replacement, upgraded pavement markings, rumble strips, signage and guardrail. The existing asphalt sidewalk on the north side of US-2 through Brockton will also be replaced with a new concrete sidewalk and Americans With Disabilities Act-compliant ramps at the intersections.

The purpose of the project is to extend the life of the pavement and to reduce maintenance costs. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.

Typically, pavement preservation projects of this size and scope are advanced to construction as soon as possible, generally within two to three years. A target construction date will be determined upon completion of all project development activities and availability of funding.

For more information, please contact Glendive District Administrator Shane Mintz at (406) 345-8212 or Project Design Engineer Megan Cail at (406) 4446230. Members of the public may submit written comments to the Montana Department of Transportation Glendive office at P.O. Box 890, Glendive, MT 59330-0890, or online at:
