Spokane Avenue Project - Phase Two
Phase Two of the Spokane Avenue Water Main Replacement project is set to begin March 20th, 2023.
Phase two construction will begin at 6th street and continue to
move North to East 2nd Street. There will be single lane traffic with flaggers from
7:00AM to 7:00PM every weekday. The Spokane Avenue Water Main Replacement project is anticipated to be completed by June 6th, 2023.
Beginning Monday March 20th,2023, East 5th Street and East 6th Street will be
closed until further notice between Spokane Ave and Kalispell Ave for construction of Spokane Avenue Water Main Replacement.
Roadway access will be maintained to properties within the closure, but travelers are encouraged to adjust their routes and travel times accordingly. The public should expect reduced speed limits, flaggers, and delays. Delays are expected to be the most severe in the morning and afternoon during school drop-off and pickup.
We appreciate the cooperation and patience of the Whitefish community in
adhering to all signage and flaggers while we work to improve the Whitefish water system and roadway.
The construction schedule is planned as follows:
» Phase 1: Completed
» Phase 2: Start construction in March of 2023 and complete construction on the
water main by June of 2023.
» MDT Repaving Project: Immediately following Phase Two.
