MDT seeking comment on pavement preservation projects in Great Falls

The Montana Department of Transportation would like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to perform pavement preservation on five roads within the Great Falls area.

The work will be done on River Drive North, Park Drive North, 2nd Street North/South, 6th Street North and 3rd Avenue South.

Proposed work on a portion of River Drive North and Park Drive North includes milling the existing surface, applying a plant mix overlay, and finishing with a seal and cover scrub seal.

Work on the remaining portion of River Drive North, 2nd Street North/South, 6th Street North, and 3rd Avenue South includes a scrub seal only.

All locations will receive new pavement markings. The purpose of the project is to extend the life of the roadways, according to MDT.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2025, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed, according to MDT.
