. Excelsior Avenue: Work begins at Platinum Street and extends for half a mile, ending at Caledonia Street. The project will consist of a chip seal and pavement markings.
. Park Street: Work begins at Montana Street and extends for about 1 mile, ending at Mining Museum Road. The project will consist of a chip seal and pavement markings.
. Shields Avenue/Farrell Street: Work begins just north of the bridge over the railroad on Shields Avenue and extends for 1 mile, ending just past the Montana Resources railroad crossing near Stuart Avenue. The project will consist of a milling, paving, chip seal, guardrail, and pavement markings.
. Grand Avenue: Work begins at Harrison Avenue and extends for about 1.5 miles, ending at Continental Drive. The project will consist of a chip seal, crack seal, and pavement markings.

The purpose of the project is to extend the service life of the roadway, provide additional skid resistance, and take a cost-effective action to preserve and maintain the existing roadway.

The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in 2024, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. No new right-of-way or utility relocations will be needed.

An important part of properly planning for future projects is partnering with the community.
