JEFFERSON CITY- The Montana Department of Transportation alerted drivers that road work will shift traffic on I-15 near Jefferson City.

Beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 21, all traffic will be moved to the northbound lanes of Interstate 15.

Crews are replacing a pair of the Prickly Pear culvert that was damaged by flooding in May. Heavy rain eroded a portion of the culvert and cause part of the highway to slump.


MDT says drivers should expect:

  • Lanes will be restricted 24/7 on I-15 within the work zone.
  • Both north- and southbound traffic will travel on the same side of I-15.
  • Speed limits are substantially reduced; slow down and use caution.

MDT expects the work to last into September. Construction updates will be posted on theMDT’s website. Email updates are available by texting JEFFCITY to 22828.
