Kalispell Bypass - Foys Lake Road

June 11th Update: The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and LHC Construction are appreciative of your patience as they work to create a smooth travel experience through the work zone.

This past week, LHC Crews experienced a bit of a delay due to wet weather conditions. Drivers may notice equipment in place to dry the ground.

Once the weather clears, workers will be continuing earthwork on the northbound on- and off-ramps. In addition, crews are moving forward with gravel and grading work on the Foys Lake side of the Bypass. This is in preparation for the western tear-drop shaped roundabout. Lastly, concrete pouring is almost complete on the Meridian Road side of the Bypass. Travelers will see a nearly complete tear-drop shaped roundabout on that eastern side.

As construction moves forward on schedule, updates are to come detailing new traffic alignments. There will likely be a fair amount of impact to traffic in the coming weeks. We will keep you updated on what to expect!

Please continue to be mindful of detours, gravel roadways, flaggers and signs especially as vacation and summer travel picks up in the next few months.

Traffic control remains the same. Southbound travel is on the on- and off-ramps through the roundabout at Foys Lake Road, and northbound traffic is on the on- and off-ramps through the roundabout at Meridian Road.

 

MDT reminds everyone this construction season to practice the Three S’s of work zone safety: speed, space and stress. Slow down when approaching work zones and follow posted speed limits. Leave adequate braking room between your vehicle and the one ahead of you. Keep your cool, pay attention, and plan for delays.
