The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is beginning two new roadwork projects outside of Kalispell and in Whitefish, Montana, in the spring of 2023.
Safety Improvements Project
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT), in partnership with LHC Incorporated, announces a roadwork project in two Flathead County locations. Near Marion, about 20 miles outside of Kalispell, crews will be widening the shoulder, grading, and adding guardrail and rumble strips throughout the area. This same work will take place in Whitefish, west of Twin Bridges Road. The project is scheduled to begin in April 2023, and will last approximately six weeks, weather dependent.
The goal of this roadwork is to improve roadway safety on both routes. Simultaneous construction in two locations allows MDT to allocate equipment, team members and budget more efficiently.
Throughout construction, traffic delays up to 15 minutes can be anticipated. Crews will direct traffic with. signals, flaggers, and pilot cars.
