The general contractor for the second phase of the Highway 93 Reconstruction project west of Whitefish — Karrow to Mountainside — announced that all major infrastructure improvements for the project were finished Sept. 4. This includes widening and paving of major roadways, implementation of sidewalks and bike paths, and completion of new water, sewer and storm drain utilities from Karrow Avenue to Mountainside Drive.

“The Karrow to Mountainside project is a great addition to Whitefish. We would like to thank the affected citizens and businesses for their patience and support throughout the construction process,” said Chuck Stearns, Whitefish city manager. “Residents and visitors are already benefitting from sidewalks and bike paths. As our city continues to expand, the new infrastructure will provide the support we need to grow.”

In addition to finalizing infrastructure in early September, Schellinger Construction crews will focus on worksite clean up during the month of September. Crews will also continue with completion of landscaping such as planting grass seed and trees. In Spring 2016, Schellinger Construction will return to chip seal the roadway, which will take three to five days.

“We are pleased to finish on-time, with excellence. We could not have done that without the support of the community and our many outstanding subcontractors,” stated Marc Blanden, Schellinger Construction’s Project Manager, “Schellinger Construction is grateful for the opportunity to serve our friends and neighbors and we hope these improvements lead to increased safety and enjoyment of the roadways.”
