The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) will be constructing sidewalk along approximately 0.76 miles of Becraft Lane in Lockwood, starting Sept. 9 The project begins at the intersection of Becraft Lane and Old Hardin Road and runs east on the north side of Becraft Lane to the intersection of Becraft Lane and Noblewood Drive.
Work includes construction of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant concrete sidewalk. The purpose of the project is to provide safety and pedestrian protection that is needed in the Lockwood community. The sidewalk on Becraft Lane will remove pedestrians from the roadway and alleviate current vehicular conflict with pedestrians.
The project is being funded with Federal Highway Administration Transportation Alternative funds and Lockwood Pedestrian Safety District funds. The project is being constructed by Riverside Contracting, Inc.
Construction is anticipated between September 9 and November 29. Sidewalk construction across driveways may, for a short period of time, limit access to these driveways. An attempt will be made to coordinate this activity with homeowners. Those using Becraft Lane should anticipate flaggers and lane shifts.
