The ongoing paving project along Hwy 117 between Fort Peck and Nashua , captured by Sean Heavey's drone camera on Nov. 5.

The road construction project on Hwy. 117 is nearing completion. And boy is it pretty in this autumn sunshine. At press time, paving operations between Nashua and Fort Peck remain underway, but much of the road surface is currently paved over. Additional layers of pavement and other traffic features are in-process. A final completion date for the project remains illusive, with state offices closed for Election Day.

Currently, travelers heading toward the junction of Hwy. 24 in Fort Peck from a spot one mile south of Nashua can expect the following conditions: loose gravel, pilot car in operation, gravel surface, and traffic controlled by signal lights. Motorcycles are advised to find an alternate route for the time being. Delays of up to 15 minutes are being reported.

For up-to-the-minute conditions regarding Hwy. 117, call 800-226-7623 or visit mdt511.com.
