Low noise centerline rumble strip installation paused for winter

Submitted by  Ella Currier


The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has substantially completed the installation of low noise centerline rumble strips on highways across Western Montana and will be pausing additional work on the project for the winter months. Crews have installed low noise centerline rumble strips in Flathead, Lake, Lincoln, Mineral, Missoula, Ravalli, and Sanders Counties on undivided highways with speed limits higher than 45 miles per hour. Lake, Ravalli, and Sanders Counties also saw roadside improvement work, with MDT updating signs and shoulder rumble strips.

MDT would like to thank the public for their patience as this significant project is almost complete. Crews will return in the spring to finish epoxy striping (roadway painting) and other miscellaneous clean-up activities on several routes in Flathead, Lincoln, and Lake Counties.

“We are happy to have this project almost completed. It has been a big lift all over our district, and we appreciate the public’s patience while we installed these safety improvements,” said John Schmidt, construction engineer for the district.” Studies from other states with centerline rumble strips showed a reduction in roadway departure crashes by as much as 42 percent and severe injury crashes by as much as 73 percent,” Schmidt added.

Low noise centerline rumble strips are designed to prevent roadway departure crashes that occur when a vehicle crosses the centerline of an undivided highway into oncoming traffic by producing noise and vibration inside the vehicle. Traditional rumble strips are also loud outside the vehicle and can be a nuisance to nearby residents. Improved design has led to these reduced noise rumble strips, which still alert the driver but produce much less noise outside the vehicle and are less disruptive to motorcyclists and passing vehicles.

With winter approaching, MDT would also like to remind the traveling public of its winter driving safety checklist:

  • Allow extra time to get to your destination.
  • Keep windows, mirrors, and lights clear of snow and ice.
  • Turn off cruise control.
  • Always buckle up.
  • Slow down in poor visibility conditions.
  • Maintain a safe distance behind other vehicles.
  • Expect ice on bridges and in shady spots.
  • Don’t pass snowplows unless it’s necessary.

The latest low noise centerline rumble strip design installed in the Missoula District does not show significant issues with snow and ice. The design installed is the best for performance with water, ice, and snow, so drivers can be assured that low noise centerline rumble strips protect them effectively year-round.
