COLUMBIA FALLS - The Montana Department of Transportation is proposing a shared-use path construction along U.S. Highway 2 east of Columbia Falls and wants to hear input from the public.
The work would include constructing an asphalt shared use path that will connect to the bridge sidewalk on the south side of U.S. Highway 2 and continue to the intersection with Montana Secondary Highway 206.
The proposed path will then cross to the north side of U.S. Highway 2 where the existing five foot wide concrete sidewalks will be widened to 10 feet.
The purpose of the project is to provide safe travel for non-motorized users and eventually connect Columbia Falls to West Glacier through future path projects that are planned or currently under construction.
The public can expect sidewalk closures in the project area during working hours. More information regarding closures will be made available prior to the beginning of construction.
