Committed to advocating for the Roberts community's needs and requests for a safe, functional and aesthetic result from MDT's Hwy 212 re-construction improvements.
Help your community by joining us on Wednesday, March 11th at 6 pm at the Roberts Fire Hall to provide feedback for the Montana Department of Transportation and Carbon County Commissioners.
RISC members are advocating for the community of Roberts, MT with these key ideas in mind:
* Lower the speed limit through Roberts to 35 MPH for community and visitor safety.
* Remove the center lane, leaving thru-traffic where it currently is and leaving the existing wide shoulders as a buffer on both sides for buggies, bikes, farm vehicles, businesses and pedestrians.
* Fill in the open ditches on both sides of the highway with buried drainage culverts to facilitate pedestrian walkways, safety, aesthetics and access to the Veteran memorials.
RISC has been forced to appeal to Governor Bullock and other state leaders because RISC's efforts with MDT at the project level have resulted in unsatisfactory results.
RISC has requested a walk-thru with MDT now that the road has been chip sealed and painted to address construction and aesthetic issues. RISC has documented photos for a punch list. MDT had agreed to a walk-thru a while back and RISC is waiting for them to commit to a date.
