The Montana Department of Transportation and Helena Sand and Gravel will begin construction on Green Meadow Drive on May 22, the agency announced in a news release Tuesday.

The $1.7 million project begins at the intersection of Green Meadow Drive with Custer Avenue and extends north for about 3 miles, to just beyond the intersection with Sierra Road.

From mid-May through the end of July, the traveling public should expect reduced speeds, single-lane traffic controlled with flaggers and/or traffic signals, detours and delays up to 15 minutes, according to the release.

“Portions of Green Meadow Drive may be closed during paving and seal and cover operations. Access to all adjacent properties will be maintained,” the news release states.

Construction work is said to include bridge deck repairs, roadway milling, plant mix pavement, and seal and cover, or chip seal.
