Construction To Be Paused For Celebration
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and Knife River crews continue work on underground storm drainage installation in Culbertson, beginning at Fourth Avenue East, heading west. Curb and gutter installation will continue on the east and west ends of the project.
Crews will finish placing aggregate to build up the 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 onsite 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 will need to find alternate routes.
The rest area on the east end of Culbertson will remain closed at this time.
Work will be paused on Friday, June 9, and Saturday, June 10, for Frontier Days.
