MISSOULA – The Russell Street project is going to look very different soon as drivers will be moved over to a portion of the newly-constructed bridge over the Clark Fork River.

The Montana Department of Transportation reports that temporary signals will be installed late Monday night which will lead to lane reductions and detours.

State transportation officials say they are anticipating a longer commute for drivers throughout the next few months in the work zone.

The project continues to stay on schedule with the west section of the bridge anticipated to be completed by the end of 2019. The entire bridge project should be finished in 2020.

Traffic is expected to be moved to the new bridge in early May. Click here for more information on the Russell Street project.
