THREE FORKS, Mont. - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to resurface about five miles of Interstate 90 (I 90), near Three Forks. The project begins west of the US 287 Interchange, Exit 274, and extends east, ending near the Three Forks Interchange, Exit 278.

Proposed work includes milling the existing surface, applying a new overlay, and finishing with a seal and cover (chip seal), upgraded pavement markings, signage, and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to extend the service life of the roadway and enhance safety features.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2025 depending on the completion of the design and the availability of funds. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.

Partnering with the community is an important part of properly planning for future projects. MDT welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted online at http:// or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Butte office, PO Box 3068, Butte, MT 59702-3068. Please note that comments are for project UPN 10254000.

The public is encouraged to contact Butte District Preconstruction Engineer, Dave Gates, at 406-494-9636 or Project Design Engineer, Rebecca Barbula, at 406-444-6227 with questions or comments about the project.
