Rau Loses Two Teachers To Retirement Highway 16 To Get
Rau Elementary teachers were honored with a
parting gift at the Rau spring program last The Montana Department of Transportation announced
Thursday. Pictured are (L-R) board members that it will be constructing passing lanes on Highway 16 at

the 25 mile marker. District Administrator Shane Mintz said

the change order was authorized this week and that the con-
tractor was proceeding with the work immediately. At a cost
of $2.3 million it is a substantial upgrade to the project. “Al-
though we don’t typically initiate change orders of this size,”
Mintz said, “the traffic conditions on Highway 16 have
changed dramatically since the initial bidding and the vol-
ume and type of vehicles using the roadway justify the change
order”. The change will consist of adding an additional travel
lane for the north bound traffic and an additional lane for the
south bound traffic effectively creating four travel lanes for a
length of approximately 1.6 miles. This will allow passenger
cars which have been accumulating behind slower moving
traffic for several miles, to pass safely. The entire job, includ-
ing chip seal of the full length, should be completed by Sep-
Wickens Construction, from Lewistown, Montana is the
General contractor on the site. They are a family owned busi-
ness in operation since 1984. Casey Durbin, co-owner, is
managing this particular project. Durbin stated ”No one is in
a better position than us to recognize the increased traffic. It
impacts every aspect of the construction process from main-
taining the gravel portions of the project, to simply providing
safe travel to the public with the pilot cars.”
The change order has been under consideration and
negotiations for a couple of months now. “This is not some-
thing that can be done without giving careful consideration
to the impact on the district’s budget, and gathering the hard
data on the actual traffic flow,” Mintz said. “We have a finite
