MDT planning pavement preservation in Havre.

(Havre) The Montana Department of Transportation is proposing a 14th Avenue pavement preservation project, which would be managed by the MDT Great Falls District.

New Media Broadcasters spoke with Jim Combs, Great Falls District Preconstruction Engineer, to ask for more information.

“The project that is intended to extend the youthful life of the roadway, 14th avenue. We’re still very early in project development right now, our intent is looking like we’re probably going to do what’s called micro-milling, and then chip seal the roadway after the micro-milling.”

The purpose of the project is to extend the service life of the existing roadway and enhance pedestrian accessibility features in compliance with ADA requirements.
