East Main Street concrete work is almost complete

Storm drain installation is completed on the Lewistown West Overpass Project. Crews are now focused on placement of gravel in advance of new curb, sidewalk and paving. During gravel operations, motorists can expect heavy truck traffic coming into the project from the west. Flaggers will be set up and a pilot car will be utilized to bring traffic through the work zone. Please use caution as there are personnel on the ground in close proximity to passing vehicles. Please follow the path of the pilot car to avoid conflicts with construction equipment. Wait times at flagging stations will generally be 7-10 minutes.

Excavation for the retaining wall footings has begun in front of MDT’s office. The future storm water detention basin will have retaining walls on both the north and south sides. This work should not impede traffic, but please exercise caution in this area and watch for construction equipment and trucks coming and going from the work site.

Concrete crews are almost complete with the concrete work on East Main Street. Expect to see Century’s crews making the final concrete pours in the coming week or so. Central Electric has begun installation of the new street luminaires throughout the project. Please use caution and avoid the areas where they are erecting the light poles. Traffic control devices are being utilized to direct motorists and pedestrian traffic away from the work zones.

At this time, Century Companies Inc. would like to remind motorists to always expect the unexpected when driving through work zones. Motorists are advised to watch for work crews, heavy equipment and reduced speed limits. Posted limits are enforced until signs indicate the work zone has ended. Fines will double in work zones.

Road construction plays a crucial role in maintaining safe roadways and travel throughout Montana. Century Companies Inc. asks that motorists practice patience when approaching construction zones. Travelers should expect delays and are encouraged to adjust their travel times accordingly. Century Companies Inc. is dedicated to expediting this project and apologizes for any inconvenience it may cause.

For questions or concerns, please contact Century Companies Inc. at 535-1200.
