Sidewalk along Round Butte Road proposed

Print Article

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to construct about 0.85 miles of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant sidewalk along Round Butte Road (Montana Secondary Highway 211) in north Ronan.

The sidewalk begins just to the east of Ronan Middle School at reference post 0.15 and extends west along the north side of Round Butte Road for 0.85 miles to connect with the existing shared-use path just west of the railroad tracks at reference post 1.00.

Proposed work includes construction of a 5- to 6-foot-wide concrete or asphalt ADA-compliant sidewalk. The purpose of the project is to provide safe pedestrian access to Ronan schools, the post office, St. Luke’s Medical Center, and various businesses.

The project is being funded with Federal Highway Administration Transportation Alternative funds and is sponsored by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. Construction is tentatively scheduled in spring of 2021 depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding.

For more information, please contact Missoula District Administrator Ed Toavs at 406-523-5802 or Project Design Engineer Terry Voeller at 406-444 9457. Members of the public may submit written comments to the Montana Department of Transportation Missoula office at P.O. Box 7039, Missoula, MT 59807-7039, or online at https://mdt.mt.gov/mdt/comment_form.shtml

Please note that comments are for project UPN 9460000. Alternative accessible formats of this information will be provided upon request by contacting Alice Flesch, Human Resources and Occupational Safety Division, P.O. Box 201001, Helena MT 59620; 406-444-9229; TTY 800-335-7592; fax 406-444-7243; or e-mail to aflesch@mt.gov.
