Work to resume this week on Lincoln Road project north of Helena


The Montana Department of Transportation and Helena Sand and Gravel will resume work on the Lincoln Road-Montana Avenue to Interstate 15 project the week of April 24.

Crews will begin work repairing the cattle guard on the southbound Interstate 15 (I-15) ramp at the Lincoln Road Interchange. Crews will also begin implementing other pavement fixes in the project area.

Construction on this project was substantially completed in 2022. This year, crews anticipate performing miscellaneous repairs prior to a seal and cover (chip seal) and application of final pavement markings in the project area.

When construction begins, motorists traveling through the project area should expect to encounter reduced speed limits, occasional lane closures, single-lane traffic controlled by flaggers, and delays of up to 15 minutes.

“Most of the project work was completed last year,” said Rich Hibl, Great Falls District construction engineer. “Construction activities in 2023 won’t have as significant an impact on motorists traveling through the project area.”
