Road construction in Montana is so consistent that it could almost be categorized as its own season here in the Treasure State. I can remember growing up as a kid; there was nothing more frustrating than driving incredibly slow through a section of road construction, or worse yet, waiting in a long line for cars for a pilot car to arrive. 

Road Construction In Montana

We know all too well that road construction picks back up again as summer approaches. The other day, the Montana Department of Transportation put out a reminder that construction along I-15 around Wolf Creek, Montana, will pick up again. Although necessary, this is a less-than-ideal location for road construction.

The construction will reduce traffic to one lane on both sides of the interstate. The crews anticipate occasional closures around Wolf Creek between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. There will also be a 12-foot width restriction in place for this area. For the latest information, check out
