Speed Limits

As of March 6, 2016 there are still no specifics on attaching SL on PLR's. This subsection is going to address this matter in addition to work zone and PR's. You should check with the Waze standard concerning how to utilize PLR's and PR's to acquire a greater understanding on their purposes and also implementation.

Work Zones

Speed limits in work zones generally have a lower posted SL to protect workers and prevent collisions. Montana Department of Transportation or MDT provides a daily update of the states construction projects on its MDT construction and maintenance website, you may also use the MDT interactive map as well to acquire the needed information to perform the [NOTE] feature for a work zone.

Montana will not post reduced SL on work zone segments. Instead we have chosen to use the [NOTE] feature using Live Map to alert drivers of an oncoming work zone and reduced SL.

Creating the [NOTE]

Gather the required information from MDT to complete your [NOTE]
