Proposed Safety Improvements on the US 93 and Wyoming Street
intersection in Kalispell



Kalispell, Montana (October 9, 2020) - The
Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to announce and
invite the public to comment on a proposal to improve the operation
and safety for vehicular and pedestrian traffic at the intersection
of US 93 and Wyoming Street in Kalispell.



Proposed work includes
updating the traffic signals with flashing yellow left-turn arrows,
installing reflective tape to the signal backplates, and including
advance vehicle detection. The sidewalk ramps will be updated, and
pedestrian countdown signal heads and new push buttons will be
installed. The purpose of the project is to improve the operation and
safety of this intersection for all users.

Construction is tentatively planned for 2023 depending on completion
of design and availability of funds.  New right-of-way and relocation
of utilities will be required.	MDT staff will contact all affected
landowners prior to doing survey work on their land.  Staff will
again contact landowners prior to construction regarding property
acquisition and temporary construction permits.



An important part of
properly planning for future projects is partnering with the
community.  The Montana Department of Transportation welcomes the
public to provide ideas and comments on the proposed project.
