MDT accepting comment on bridge preservation projects

The Montana Department of Transportation is inviting the public to comment on a proposal to preserve 41 bridges in Ravalli County south of Missoula. 

These bridges are located on US Highway (US 93) between Florence and Sula, the Eastside Highway, Victor Crossing and Main Street in Hamilton. These bridges have been identified as candidates for rehabilitation due to the wear and cracking of their bridge decks. The purpose of this project is to repair and seal bridge decks to increase the service life of the bridges in a cost-effective manner.

Proposed work includes a variety of bridge deck repairs and preservation treatments. The treatments include concrete deck repair, minor joint repair, crack sealing, thin lift overlays and smoothing out end transitions. 

Individual bridge decks may need only one or more of the lifted treatments.
