Work on a $9.6 million project to make improvements along Lincoln Road north is at the halfway point, a state official said.

Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and contracting partner Helena Sand and Gravel are improving the Lincoln Road and Montana Avenue intersection as well as the Interstate 15 and Lincoln Road interchange, exit 200, northbound off-ramp and southbound on-ramp. 

Roundabouts are being installed on the northbound I-15 off-ramp to Lincoln Road and at the intersection of Lincoln Road and Montana Avenue.

Most of the work is to be completed by fall, with crews returning in 2023 to chip seal and add final pavement markings to the roadway, an MDT official said.

Camaree Uljua, the MDT engineering project manager, said progress on the project is going along as scheduled.
