Final Work Begins To Wrap Up Sidewalk Improvements



HELENA -  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) will resume
construction to complete the finishing touches on the Lyndale 
Montana Sidewalk Project. Work is expected to begin Friday, April 16
weather permitting.



"We'd really like to thank the local businesses
and community for their patience during the project,: said MDT
Engineering Project Manager Camaree Uljua. "The project is nearly
complete and as long as the weather cooperates, we'll finish painting
and asphalt work in a few weeks."



The remaining work includes
painting curbs and crosswalks, minor asphalt patches, and
miscellaneous punch list tasks. The work will require intermittent
lane closures in the driving lane on Lyndale and Montana avenues.
Construction is expected to take a few weeks to complete as long as
weather remains suitable for construction. 



During construction
motorists and pedestrians can expect:

 - Single lane closures in the
driving lanes.

 - Intermittent turning lane and side street closures.
 - Work will take place from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday through
Saturday.

 - Lane closures may remain in place overnight.

 -
Sidewalks may be closed in places during construction.



Improvements
completed in 2020 included updating sidewalks and ramps to comply
with the Americans with Disabilities Act standards, replacing
sections of deteriorated sidewalk, curbs and gutters, and updating
electrical equipment at intersections.
