Construction underway on Highways 83, 82

| June 5, 2024 12:00 AM

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and LHC Inc. experienced delays in sign installation on the northern segment of the Swan Lake Pavement Preservation project on Montana Highway 83 (MT 83). This week travelers can expect signage installation between mile markers 70 and 78, traffic control in place, single-lane closures, 10 to 15-minute delays, temporary traffic lights, and pilot cars. Typical working hours are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

MDT will be replacing a traffic signal box at the intersection of US Highway 93 (US 93) with Montana Highway 82 (MT 82). MDT is working to reduce traffic impacts so this work will take place on the evening of Thursday, June 6th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., weather and other factors permitting. The stop lights at this intersection will be non-operating during the box replacement. Motorists can expect flaggers to direct traffic through the intersection. Travelers can expect 10 to 15-minute delays, reduced speeds, single-lane traffic, and traffic control will be in place. Please follow all posted signage and watch for workers throughout the project area. For the most up-to-date width restrictions and road conditions visit 511mt.net.
