Montana Department of Transportation Proposes Study on Operational Improvements on Montana Highway 40 Near Whitefish
WHITEFISH - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to study operational improvements on a segment of Montana Highway 40 (MT-40) in Flathead County. The study will begin at the intersection of MT-40 and U.S. Highway 93 and extend easterly 2.6 miles to reference post 2.6, about 0.1 mile east of the intersection with Dillon Road and Conn Road.
The study will evaluate options for surfacing rehabilitation and options for operational improvements that may include widening to provide a two-way left-turn lane and widening for right-turn-only lanes at selected intersections. The results of the study may lead to a design project that would develop plans for a future construction project.
The study is currently scheduled to be completed in late 2019.
