Previous Next

Grass Range, Lewistown, Malta MT — The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and invite the public to comment on a proposal to rehabilitate the Missouri River bridge deck. The bridge is known as the Fred Robinson Bridge and is located on Highway US-191, approximately 39 miles north of Grass Range. The bridge is near the James Kipp Recreation Area. 

Proposed work includes repairing or replacing the bridge deck, upgrading bridge approach rail, repairing/replacing joints and other minor work. The purpose of the project is to improve the bridge deck and prolong the life of the bridge. Single lane traffic or detours may be possible during construction.

The project is tentatively planned for construction in 2024, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. New right-of-way and utility relocations are not anticipated at this time. MDT staff will contact all affected landowners prior to doing survey work on their land.

An important part of properly planning for future projects is partnering with the community. The Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project. Comments may be submitted online at or in writing to Montana Department of Transportation, Billings office at PO Box 20437, Billings, MT  59104-0437. Please note that comments are for project UPN 8542002.

The public is encouraged to contact Billings District Administrator Rod Nelson at (406) 657-0229 or Project Design Engineer Tracy Stoner at (406) 4447610 for additional information.
