Areas of downtown parking closed next week due to paving

Some parking areas in downtown Bigfork will be closed next Monday and Tuesday due to a paving project part of bay sewer improvements by Bigfork Water and Sewer.

According to engineering firm Morrison-Maierle, LHC plans to mill and prep on May 16th and pave on May 17th, unless there is bad weather.

No parking will be available in the work area during these two days. The street will be closed to through traffic while crews are working.

Access will be maintained on River/Osborn Street while they are working on Electric/Bridge Street. Once Electric/Bridge Street is finished, they will open the street back up and move to finish River Street.

LHC will try and keep the streets open as much as possible for local traffic to get through, but there may be a couple hours when residents can’t drive through the work area while the asphalt sets up or if there is equipment in the way.

People are encouraged to park away from the project area and walk if at all possible, especially while workers are paving.

LHC will put out signs a few days in advance to let people know of the parking closures. Residents can contact Morrison-Maierle at 406-752-2216 if they have concerns or need to get out at a specific time.
