The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) in coordination with the City of Kalispell would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to improve the Woodland Avenue and 2nd Street East/Conrad intersection. The project is generally located at the southwest corner of Woodland Park.
Project team members will be hosting an open house at City Hall, in the Council Chambers, 201 First Avenue East, Kalispell on October 28, 2019 between 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to discuss the design of the project. THE LOCATION WAS CHANGED FROM THE LIBRARY TO THE COUNCIL CHAMBERS AS OF OCT. 18TH.
An early feasibility study has identified a mini-roundabout as the most appropriate intersection control and the project will be entering the design phase once the full feasibility study has completed. The purpose of the project is to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes, accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic, mitigate the steep grade on the east leg of the intersection, and to the extent possible, fit the improvements within the existing intersection and right-of-way footprint.
The public is encouraged to attend the project information event.
