News from the Montana Department of Transportation

ST. IGNATIUS — The Montana Department of Transportation would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to resurface about 18.3 miles of Highway 93 in Lake County. The project begins 0.1 miles north of the North Street intersection in Arlee on Highway 93, at reference post 18.5, and extends north for 18.3 miles ending 0.2 miles south of the Dublin Gulch Road/Red Horn Road intersection, at reference post (RP) 36.8.

Proposed work includes resurfacing the highway by applying a chip seal to the roadway surface. 

Extra pavement and/or asphalt work will take place at the Jocko River Bridge and the rest area access on Ravalli Hill. In addition, the project will upgrade the pavement markings. 

The project’s purpose is to extend the service life of the highway and take a cost-effective action to preserve and maintain the existing highway.

The public can expect single-lane closures in the project area during working hours. More information regarding closures will be made available prior to the beginning of construction.

No property acquisition or utility relocations are anticipated for this project.

Construction is expected to begin in 2014, depending on funding availability and design completion.
