The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT), along with Montana Rail Link (MRL), will be removing railroad crossings and using asphalt to re-pave at three locations in the Bitterroot Valley.
Railroad crossings will be removed at the intersection of Eastside Highway with US Highway 93 South (US 93) at mile marker 74; Marcus Street in Hamilton; and US 93 at mile marker 31 in Darby.
Work is scheduled to begin August 21, weather permitting, and is anticipated to last for approximately two weeks. Crews will be working from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Expect extended delays, reduced speeds, and single-lane traffic when traveling through the project areas. Drivers should consider taking an alternate route. Westbound traffic will be detoured at the Marcus Street crossing. For the most up-to-date width restrictions and road conditions visit https://urldefense.com/v3/__ht
