Construction - Zone 2 Information
The Montana Department of Transportation is updating sidewalk corners throughout the City of Missoula to make sure they are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Updates to ramps on street corners will allow all users to get on and off sidewalks more easily. People with disabilities, parents with strollers or small children, delivery drivers, older adults and other groups will enjoy more accessible curbs once construction is complete.
The next phase of the Missoula ADA project will begin work on Orange Street in mid-May and end by the beginning of July. Work will occur on intersections starting at the intersection of Orange and North 2nd Street and move south, ending at Orange Street and Sixth Street.
During the construction, travelers on Orange Street may experience delays, detours and traffic congestion. Vehicle traffic may be narrowed to one lane in some sections, with possible short closures of Orange Street. To ensure the resident cars are not damaged, parking will not be permitted within 50 feet of street corners under active construction; motorists are encouraged to park midblock to avoid being towed.
Work will be performed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday - Saturday during each week. Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are encouraged to be mindful of other users, and should obey all posted work zone signage. Pedestrians are encouraged to use alternative routes during construction, such as neighboring streets.
