The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is inviting the public to participate in an online open house and question and answer session. MDT will present information and answer questions about four construction projects to improve Highway 43 between Chief Joseph Pass and Wise River. Construction is anticipated to begin in April 2021 and be completed in the fall.
The public will have two opportunities to participate in an open house and Q&A session. The public is encouraged to attend whichever open house is most convenient. The information presented at both open houses will be the same.
The first online open house will take place on:
- Tuesday, April 6 from Noon – 1:00 p.m.
The second online open house will take place on:
- Tuesday, April 6 from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Registration is necessary to attend. To register visit https://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/hwy43/ and follow the instruction on the page. If you are unable to attend either session, the recorded presentation will be posted on the project website beginning April 8.
For more information, contact Brandon Coates, Public Involvement Manager, RBCI, at Brandon@rbci.net or call (406) 465-3350.
The Montana Department of Transportation is using online meetings and presentations to engage with the public rather than in-person meetings due to community health and safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. MDT together with its construction and consulting partners, continue to take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. Montana’s road and bridge projects are considered an “essential” operation and will continue moving forward as scheduled. For more information visit https://covid19.mt.gov/
The Department of Transportation will make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities who wish to participate in the Trail Creek Bridges, Wisdom West, Wisdom North and Wise River Northwest public meeting or need an alternative accessible format of this notice. If you require an accommodation, contact the Department of Transportation no later than April 2, 2020, to advise us of the nature of the accommodation that you need.
