Three MDT projects planned


The Montana Department of Transportation is looking for comments on three projects proposed in north-central Montana, with a total construction cost of about $14 million.

The draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program recently released by MDT include a project about 25 miles north of Havre, reconstructing nine miles of State Road 233 at a cost estimated at more than $6 million.

Another project would recycle and resurface 9.3 miles of U.S. Highway 2 from the Hill County line east, at an estimated cost of about $3 million.

The plan also proposes resurfacing U.S. Highway 87 for about 37 miles between Loma and Box Elder, at an estimated cost of $5 million.

MDT is looking for public comment on proposed projects to help it plan future work on transportation infrastructure. The projects would begin in the next three years.

Box 201001, Helena, MT 59620-1001. Copies of the draft plan are also available local public libraries or on the MDT's Internet Web site at
