News from Sloane Stinson Big Sky Public Relations 

RONAN — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and Riverside Contracting Inc. have paused construction activity on the Ronan-North project for the winter. 

Thank you for your patience and support during the busy construction season. Crews look forward to completing the project next year. Updates will be provided as 2024 work approaches.

Activities to be completed next year include paving the shared-use path along US 93, painting the final epoxy road markings, and other finishing work.

Streetlights and the new traffic signal at the US 93 intersection with Old US 93 and Third Ave. will also be installed. The installation of the traffic signal is delayed due to unforeseen supplier issues. MDT is working to ensure the traffic signal is installed as soon as possible.

The Round Butte Road Path - Ronan project will also be completed in early 2024. This project includes building two new sections of sidewalk on the north side of Round Butte Road. 

This schedule is subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen factors.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. Email me at: or call the project hotline at 406-207-4484, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information on the Ronan-North project, visit:

Have a happy and safe holiday season.
