The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is conducting a public open house to discuss the final phase of the Belt North and South project at Armington Junction. Project team members will be in attendance to discuss the project and hear concerns and answer questions.
The public open house will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 5 at the Belt Public School located at #1 Church Street. The event will be an open house format, and the public is encouraged to attend at its convenience and visit the exhibits.
This summer, MDT will begin construction of Phase 3 of the Belt North and South project at Armington Junction, which is the intersection of US 87 and US 89 near Belt. Riverside Contracting was awarded the project and is anticipated to begin work in early August.
This project will:
- · Reconstruct approximately 3.5 miles of existing roadway on US 87, widening the roadway before and after Armington Junction to five lanes.
- · Construct a roundabout at Armington Junction.
- · Construct a new bridge over Belt Creek and install new culvert structures for Neil Creek and Frenchman’s Coulee.
