Expect traffic delays over Milltown bridge next week, MDT advises
The Montana Department of Transportation would like to inform motorist that the Highway 200 bridge located over the Blackfoot River in Milltown will be closed for a short time during the next week. MDT will provide 24-hours notice prior to the closure. The closure is expected to last up to 30 minutes.
MDT will be removing the center pier of the old bridge. For safety reason, the new bridge will be closed to traffic while removal activities commence. Scheduling of the removal is dependent on weather and other construction activities.
