Montana Department of Transportation Proposes Safety Improvement Project on U.S. Highway 93 in Kalispell
 
Kalispell - The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to install safety improvements on U.S. Highway 93 (U.S. 93) in Kalispell. The proposed project is located on U.S. 93 at the intersection with Treeline Road in Kalispell, beginning at reference marker 115.3 and extending to reference marker 115.7.
 
The proposed project has been nominated to provide intersection and signal upgrades at Treeline Road and U.S. 93 in Kalispell. The proposed improvements on Treeline Road include eliminating the raised medians to align the exclusive left turn lanes across the intersection and providing exclusive through and right turn lanes. The project will also include upgraded signal equipment and pedestrian facilities including pedestrian ramps, push buttons and pedestrian signals where required to meet current and Americans with Disabilities Act standards. The purpose of the project is to improve intersection operations for the traveling public.
 
The project is tentatively scheduled for construction in the summer of 2019, depending on completion of all project development activities and availability of funding. Temporary right-of-way agreements may be needed. Utility relocations may be necessary.
