HELENA — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has announced a proposal to mill and overlay about 6.4 miles of Highway 12, east of Townsend.

The project begins at reference post 0.0 at the intersection of Front St. and Broadway in Townsend, and extends easterly for 6.4 miles ending 0.6 miles east of the intersection of Lower Deep Creek Rd, at reference post 6.4.

Proposed work includes milling, paving, chip sealing, new pavement markings, sign upgrades, guardrail upgrades, and tree clearing. The purpose of the project is to preserve and increase the life of the pavement, as well as provide increased traction and safety improvements.

The construction date will be scheduled upon completion of all project development activities and available funding.

MDT welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project.
