The Montana Department of Transportation is improving three bridges in Wolf Creek. The project will involve:
- Resurfacing the north- and southbound Wolf Creek Interchange Bridges on I 15.
- Replacing the upper deck portion of the Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge located on Walsh Street.
Why is the project needed?
The bridge deck surfaces are heavily worn down. Resurfacing the I 15 bridges will improve the driving surface and extend the life of the bridge. The upper deck portion of the Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge has deteriorated and needs to be replaced. The rest of the bridge is in good shape and will remain in place.
The resurfacing and replacement of these bridge decks will help ensure the safety and integrity of the roadway for motorists and the community of Wolf Creek well into the future.
Construction will take place in 2022 and will take 3-4 months to complete.
Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge
Traffic impacts on Walsh Street will likely involve slight delays, lane shifts, reduced lane widths and alternating one-way traffic. MDT plans to maintain access over Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge during construction, however, restricted vehicle widths and weights are likely.
Interstate 15 Bridges at Wolf Creek
Access to Wolf Creek on- and off-ramps will be maintained. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and crossover lanes will shift traffic to the same side of the interstate through the work zone. The speed limit will be reduced and vehicle widths will be restricted.
