December 2, 2020

Roundup, Montana (November 25, 2020) - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to reduce centerline rumble strip noise along 8.5 miles of Highway 87, south of Roundup in Musselshell County.

The project begins at mile post 35.5 and extends north for 8.5 miles ending at mile post 44.0.

Proposed work includes the modification of centerline rumble strips (low noise) at select locations and replacing the centerline pavement markings. The purpose of the project is to mitigate noise generated by centerline rumble strips that are near residential properties.

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

An important part of properly planning for future projects is partnering with the community. The Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted online at or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Billings office at PO Box 20437, Billings, MT 59104-0437. Please note that comments are for project UPN 9809000.

The public is encouraged to contact Billings District Administrator Rod Nelson at (406) 657-0229 or District Projects Engineer Kurtis Schnieber at (406) 657 0269 with project questions.

Alternative accessible formats of this document will be provided on request. Persons who need an alternative format should contact the Office of Civil Rights, Department of Transportation, 2701 Prospect Avenue, PO Box 201001, Helena, MT 59620.
