Project Overview

Prior to the design / development of the reconstruction project for the Kalispell Courthouse Couplet, MDT has engaged Robert Peccia and Associates to provide preliminary traffic engineering and coordination services under their 2015 – 2016 Traffic Engineering Term Contract. The intent of this preliminary phase is to determine the final roadway configuration, identify traffic operational and safety issues, and collaborate with the local governments and the public. This preliminary phase is intended to identify final lane use and other geometric recommendations, and complete the traffic analysis necessary for advancing the project, while considering the other Main Street improvements being considered by Flathead County and the City of Kalispell.
