Boulder  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT)
would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to
upgrade 8.1 miles of guardrail on Interstate 15 north of Boulder in
Jefferson County. The project begins approximately three miles north
of the Boulder Interchange at reference post 167.0 and extends north
for 8.1 miles, ending near the Jefferson City Interchange at
reference post 175.1.

Proposed work includes installation of new
compliant guardrail. The purpose of the project is to replace all
guardrail on Boulder Hill.

The project is tentatively scheduled for
construction in 2021, depending on completion of all project
development activities and availability of funding. No new
right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.
