Edgewood Place Reconstruction

White’s Civil Contracting has secured some water main pipe and will RESUME CONSTRUCTION on Tuesday, August 10ᵗʰ. It is uncertain at this time if further material delays will result in future shutdowns.

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

Edgewood Place, from Colorado Avenue to Texas Avenue, will be closed starting Tuesday, August 10ᵗʰ. Please follow all posted traffic control signage and be on the lookout for changing site conditions.

To facilitate planned roadway reconstruction efforts, the City of Whitefish will be extending the Edgewood Place closure to include the area from Wisconsin Avenue to Colorado Avenue starting Monday September 20, 2021 at 8:00 AM. This additional segment of Edgewood Place will remain closed for approximately 10 days and is planned to reopen to the public on approximately Monday, September 27th, 2021.

As scheduled, White’s Civil Contracting started construction on the Edgewood Place Reconstruction Project on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021.  Edgewood Place was closed to vehicular traffic on Thursday, July 8th, 2021, from Colorado Avenue to Texas Avenue, that allowed for the contractor to complete the planned removal of trees in that area. The contractor was then scheduled to proceed with water and storm drainage pipe installations, but the production of these pipe materials has been delayed.  The delays are largely due to Covid-19 production impacts, high demand for plastic pipe, and plastic pipe resin shortages. It is uncertain at this time when pipe will arrive and the contractor will resume work.  That said, the City of Whitefish and White’s Civil Contracting have agreed to a CONSTRUCTION SHUTDOWN that started at noon on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021.  At that time Edgewood Place was re-opened 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.
