Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Project to Upgrade American With
Disabilities Act Pedestrian Features in Great Falls

GREAT FALLS 
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to notify
the public and seek comments on a proposal to replace existing
non-compliant Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) sidewalk ramps
and alley aprons on 6th Street Southwest and Central Avenue West. 

The project segment on 6th Street Southwest begins at the
intersection of Fox Farm Road and Country Club Boulevard and extends
north to Central Avenue West. The second project segment on Central
Avenue West begins at Interstate 15 and extends east to 9th Street
Northwest.

Proposed work includes replacing existing sidewalk corner
ADA ramps and upgrading alley aprons. The purpose of the project is
to upgrade existing ADA facilities to current standards.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2018 depending on the
availability of funding and the completion of contract requirements.
New right-of-way is not anticipated but some impact to existing storm
drain inlets is anticipated.
