Paving Begins on Wisconsin Avenue in Whitefish

Commuters should expect delays and reduced speed limits as repairs commence north of viaduct

Wisconsin Avenue in Whitefish will be under repair for much of September as the main north-south corridor connecting the downtown center to the city’s north side and Whitefish Mountain Resort undergoes milling and paving.

The Montana Department of Transportation is overlaying the road from the north end of the viaduct to the intersection of Big Mountain Road.

The project will last 25 days, and while traffic will be maintained on the corridor throughout construction, motorists and commuters should expect delays, roadside flaggers and a reduced speed limit.

The Whitefish City Council prioritized Wisconsin Avenue for a corridor study that will evaluate existing land uses and opportunities for new land uses that will support existing businesses while protecting the character and quality of adjacent residential neighborhoods.
