Construction Continues In Culbertson

This week, the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and Knife River crews will continue to work on underground storm drainage installation from 5th Avenue East heading west and culvert installation.

Crews will also work on placing aggregate to build up the new driving surface and repair any soft spots in the gravel. Aggregate is a broad category of medium-grade particulate that often consists of crushed rock and is used as a base layer to reinforce and strengthen the asphalt.

MDT is committed to the safety of the traveling public and is on-site monitoring road conditions through the US 2 Culbertson project area. The driving surface is maintained every hour to ensure maximum access and drivability, and crews monitor delay length to ensure minimal inconvenience.

Traffic will be restricted to one lane and controlled by flaggers or traffic signals. Drivers should be prepared for minor delays.

Travelers can expect a 12-foot width restriction throughout the project. Loads over 12 feet can be accommodated but should anticipate delays.

The rest area on the east end of Culbertson will be closed until the end of May.
