RAVALLI — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to install signs, flashers, and a vehicle speed feedback sign near Ravalli on about three miles of US Highway 93, just south of Ravalli. The project begins at about a mile south of North Valley Creek Road and extends north for about three miles ending near Buffalo Street in Ravalli.

Proposed work includes installing curve warning signs, chevrons, flashers, and a weather-activated sign/flasher. A vehicle speed feedback sign will also be installed. The purpose of the project is to alert drivers of curves, road conditions, and their speed.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2024, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. No new Right-of-Way or utility relocations will be needed.

An important part of properly planning for future projects is partnering with the community. The Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted online by clicking here  or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Missoula office at PO Box 7039, Missoula, MT 59807-7039. Please note that comments are for project UPN 9893000.
