Detour completed around Lincoln Road and Montana Avenue project

INDEPENDENT RECORD

A detour has been completed around the Lincoln Road and Montana Avenue intersection as part of the $9.6 million Lincoln Road – Montana I-15 project, officials said Thursday.

The detour uses Kingpost Loop and Rustic Way to direct traffic around construction at the Lincoln Road and North Montana Avenue intersection, the Montana Department of Transportation said. It will help improve traffic flow around the construction zone and supports two-way traffic with traffic-sensing smart signals at the detour intersections.

Camaree Uljua, MDT engineering project manager, said they will be monitoring traffic and adjusting traffic signals as needed to keep traffic moving through the detour as efficiently as possible.

During construction, motorists can expect:

• Speed limits will be reduced.

• An 11-foot width restriction will be in place on Lincoln Road and the I-

15 Lincoln Road Interchange (Exit 200) ramps.
