The Montana Department of Transportation and construction partner Schellinger Construction, began road rehabilitation project activities on Montana Highway 37 this week.

The project begins at the bridge over Sutton Creek, three miles north of Peck Gulch Campground, and extends approximately 12 miles north, to just past the intersection with Salmon Drive.

Rehabilitation work includes milling the existing road surface and placing a new plant mix overlay surface. Additional work includes new signage, pavement markings, guardrail and rumble strips. The project is intended to preserve and extend the life of the roadway while
reducing maintenance costs.

Traffic control will be in place and includes reduced speeds and single-lane traffic. Travelers should expect 10- to 15-minute delays and driving on a gravel surface through the project area.

Crews will be working from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Work is anticipated to continue until November. Crews will return in June 2025 to apply a seal and cover (chip seal) and final pavement markings.
