To help accommodate increased travel on highways during the Fourth of July holiday, the Montana Department of Transportation is requiring contractors to shut down many active construction operations Friday afternoon through Tuesday.
Some maintenance projects will stay active but will not affect the flow of traffic. These projects are mainly shoulder work and fencing projects.
Travelers can access current construction road reports by dialing 511 or 800-226-7623. MDT also provides a construction road report Web site www.mdt511.com.
For more information, call Brandi Hamilton at 444-0468. For the hearing impaired, the TTY number is 444-7696 or 800-335-7592 or Montana Relay at 711.
