Montana Highway 42 (MT 42) is a short, 2.9-mile-long (4.7 km) state highway in the U.S. state of Montana, connecting Montana Highway 24 with downtown Glasgow. Formerly Highway 24W,[citation needed] Highway 42 (its route number a reversal of "24") runs northwest from where Highway 24 crosses the BNSF Railway's Northern Transcon, staying parallel to the tracks until it turns right in Glasgow's downtown and dives under the railroad to meet with and terminate at U.S. Route 2.[citation needed]

Route description[edit]

MT 42 begins at a T-intersection with MT 24 southwest of Glasgow. MT 24 makes up the northern and southeastern leg of the intersection, while MT 42 heads to the northwest. For most of its length, the route is situated between the Milk River and the Northern Transcon. MT 42 and the railroad enter Glasgow from the southeast and both curve to the north-northwest; in town, the highway follows First Avenue South. Near the city's Amtrak station, MT 42 turns to the north onto Sixth Street and crosses beneath the railroad tracks. Shortly thereafter, it ends at its intersection with US 2.[citation needed]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Valley County.
