Press release

The Montana Department of Transportation announced and invited the public to comment on a proposal to apply a scrub seal and new pavement markings on about 22 miles of Highway 223, south of Chester.

The project begins approximately south of the Liberty/Chouteau county line and extends north for 22 miles, ending 5 miles south of Chester.

Proposed work includes a scrub seal, new pavement markings, new warning and regulatory signs, and a bridge deck repair and seal over the Marias River bridge. The purpose of the project is to preserve the existing pavement and extend the service life of the existing asphalt.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2024, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.

An important part of properly planning for future projects is partnering with the community. The Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted online at or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Great Falls office, PO Box 1359, Great Falls, MT 59403-1359. Please note that comments are for project UPN 10285000.

The public is encouraged to contact Great Falls District Preconstruction Engineer James Combs at 406-454-5900 or acting District Projects Engineer Jeania Cereck at 406-454-5898 with questions or comments about the project.

Alternative accessible formats of this document will be provided on request. People who need an alternative format should contact the Office of Civil Rights, Department of Transportation, 2701 Prospect Avenue, PO Box 201001, Helena, MT 59620.
