Road construction on Highway 93 continues through September with a major surfacing project between Missoula and Lolo expected to slow traffic starting Tuesday, September 6.

In a news release last week, Riverside Contracting advised drivers that the company, in conjunction with the Montana Department of Transportation, will be closing lanes on the four-lane stretch of US 93, starting at 5 a.m. with a single southbound lane open until 4 p.m. daily. A single northbound lane will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The schedule is subject to weather conditions, of course. However, if weather permits, surfacing work will also be done at night. The project includes further work on a number of intersections in Hamilton and Missoula, improving signs, signals and sidewalks.

Lighting work is also scheduled between Buckhouse Bridge and Reserve Street.

The short version of the advisory - expect lengthy delays and slow moving traffic. The work is expected to continue "for the next several weeks including weekends."
