More Road Construction In The Valley

KLYQ File Photo

The construction season is in full swing throughout the valley. Of course, there’s the US 93 project. Then, there’s the work over at Middle Burnt Fork, and don’t forget the West Side Road west of Hamilton, and the new one-lane section of the Skalkaho Highway, and now….
The West Fork Road will be “chip sealed” by the Ravalli County Road and Bridge Department, starting Wednesday July 20.
The entire length of the roadway will receive the treatment, part of a 2-million dollar Pavement Preservation and Safety Enhancement project. The Federal Highway Administration awarded the grant to Ravalli County.
Schellinger Construction of Columbia Falls will be doing the work, which includes replacement of signs and placement of durable pavement markings.
Work will start at Woods Creek and continue north. Crews will work between 7am and 7pm on weekdays. The project is expected to take about a week.
There will be traffic delays. During that time, construction zone traffic will be reduced to one-lane and speeds will limited to 25 miles per hour. That speed limit will remain in effect until the asphalt oil “cures,” the aggregate becomes firmly embedded and surface is swept clean of any excess.
Driving faster than 25 mph can cause rock chip damage, and Ravalli County will not be responsible for any rock-chip damage to vehicles.
