Edgewood and Texas Reconstruction Project

Texas Edg logo FINALThe City of Whitefish is reconstructing Edgewood Place & Texas Avenue. The City has selected the engineering firm of Robert Peccia & Associates (RPA) to assist them with project management, public involvement, surveying and civil engineering. The project will generally include roadway reconstruction, a bicycle/pedestrian path, decorative street lighting and drainage improvements.

The Edgewood & Texas Reconstruction Project will consist of reconstructing Texas Avenue from Edgewood Place to the northern city limits and Edgewood Place from Colorado Avenue to the eastern city limits. The total length of the project is approximately 5,650 linear feet. Edgewood will be constructed during the summer of 2021 and it is anticipated Texas Ave will be constructed the summer of 2022.

Construction Update:

The City of Whitefish and White’s Civil Contracting have agreed to a CONSTRUCTION SHUTDOWN that started at noon on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021. The delay largely due to Covid-19 production impacts, high demand for plastic pipe, and plastic pipe resin shortages. 

At this time Edgewood Place was reopened to vehicular traffic and will remain so for the foreseeable future. We are hopeful that construction activities will commence later this summer, but at this point we are not certain when work will resume. Once that date is known, an update will be provided to the public.

Throughout the development of the project there will be several public outreach campaigns and opportunities for public involvement.
