Sidewalk construction to begin early June in East Helena



EAST
HELENA, MONTANA (May 18, 2020) — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) will be constructing new Americans with
Disabilities (ADA) compliant sidewalk within the City of East Helena.
 The sidewalk locations are:



•	North side of East Lewis Street
from the intersection of East Lewis Street and Lake Helena Drive near
Eastgate School to the intersection of East Lewis Street and Oak
Avenue near East Valley Middle School.

•	South side of East
King Street from the intersection of East King Street and North
Helena Avenue near Radley Elementary to the intersection of East King
Street and Montana Avenue.  Realignment of the North Helena Avenue
crossing from Radley Elementary is included.

•	West side of
Montana Avenue from the intersection of East King Street and Montana
Avenue to existing sidewalk in the alley between East King Street and
East Clinton Street.



The purpose of the project is to provide ADA
compliant sidewalk that connects Eastgate School with East Valley
Middle School.	In addition, construction of ADA compliant sidewalk
near Radley Elementary will allow for students to travel south on
North Montana Avenue.  Project work includes sidewalks, ADA
crossings, revegetation, signing and pavement markings.



The project
is being funded with Federal Highway Administration Transportation
Alternative funds and East Helena School District.  The project is
being constructed by Helena Sand & Gravel, Inc.



Weather permitting
construction is anticipated between June 1, 2020 and mid-August 2020.
 Sidewalk construction may cause temporary single lane closures. 
Street parking will be impacted temporarily during construction on
East King Street and Montana Avenue.  Construction across driveways
may, for a short period of time, limit access to these driveways. 
Helena Sand & Gravel, Inc. will attempt to coordinate temporary
parking closures and access for these driveways with homeowners.
