Jordan – The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is launching the first of five phases on a 37-mile reconstruction of Highway 200 between Jordan and Brockway.

The first phase, known as Little Dry Creek-East, will improve seven miles of highway between the Little Dry Creek Bridge and the Flowing Wells Rest Area. Wickens Construction will begin work on this section of the project this month and continue through the summer.

“Highway 200 experiences significant year-round traffic and was not built to accommodate the large vehicles that frequently travel through the area,” Shane Mintz, Glendive District Administrator said. “These improvements will provide a safer roadway for all users and extend the life of the highway for many years.”

Updates to the highway include widening the road to add a six-foot shoulder, rumble strips on the shoulders and center line, and new signage and striping.

Drivers can expect single-lane closures, reduced speeds and minor delays while construction is completed.
