Construction Temporarily Closes I-90 Exits in Belgrade on Monday
Motorists travelling eastbound on Interstate 90 will not be able to use the Belgrade Interchange (Exit 298) and the Airway Boulevard Interchange (Exit 299) on Monday, June 7, according to a press release from the Montana Department of Transportation.
Crews willing be milling and paving the eastbound lanes of I-90 near Belgrade.
Milling and paving the interchange ramps is an important step in the project. We’re making steady progress and are looking forward to making Bozeman Hill safer as we begin construction on the Bozeman Hill Guardrail Project.
said MDT Engineering Project Manager Craig Walker.
While crews are working, the eastbound on and off-ramps at these interchanges will be closed to motorists for about four hours. The work will begin in the morning and is expected to be completed in the afternoon.
During the ramp closures, drivers will need to find an alternate route. MDT asks that you continue east on I-90 and take the North 19th Avenue Exit (Exit 305) and return to your exit on westbound I-90. The Frontage Road is also an option.
In other construction-related news. Work is also scheduled to begin on the Bozeman Hill Guardrail Project on Wednesday, June 9. This project begins east of the Bozeman Trail Road Interchange (Exit 313) and ends about two miles east of the Flynn Creek Road Interchange (Exit 324). During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane where guardrail work is taking place. There will also be a 12-foot width restriction in place for westbound traffic from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday in the Bozeman Hill Guardrail Project work zone.
The construction of both of the projects is expected to be completed in the fall of 2021.
MDT encourages motorists to plan ahead, allow extra travel time, slow down and use caution through work zones on Interstate 90. Current construction information and road conditions throughout Montana can also be found here.
