State plans to widen U.S. 93 west of Whitefish

Print Article

The Montana Department of Transportation will hold an open house meeting Wednesday, March 20, for a proposal to widen 1 mile of U.S. 93 west of Whitefish, between mile post 133 and 134, including two curves between Twin Bridges and Beaver Lake roads.

The open house will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Whitefish Community Center, 121 E. Second St. The public is invited to look at project displays, ask questions and provide comments on the project. Project team members will be available to discuss the project.

Proposed work includes widening the roadway to include 4-foot shoulders, flattening side slopes, and guardrail. The purpose of the project is to increase safety by addressing run-off-the-road crashes.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2022, depending on completion of design and availability of funds. Minor utility relocation and acquisition of new right of way are anticipated.

Community participation is an important part of the process, and the public is encouraged to attend.

The state attempts to provide accommodations for any known disability that may interfere with a person’s participation. For reasonable accommodations to participate in this meeting, contact Jan Nesset at 406-556-4707 at least two days prior to the meeting.

Comments may also be submitted in writing at the meeting, by mail to Missoula District Administrator Ed Toavs at the Montana Department of Transportation Missoula office at P.O. Box 7039, Missoula, MT 59807-7039, or online at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com. Please note that comments are for project UPN 9417 and submit by April 20.
