The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and Knife River have completed the Kalispell ADA project. For information regarding each of the various project phases, please visit the Completed Work section of this webpage, also listed under “Links.”

Project Overview

Through the Kalispell ADA project, the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT), in partnership with Knife River and WGM Group, will update several sidewalk ramps in the Kalispell area to meet current ADA guidelines.

The project team will install updated ramp devices, called truncated domes. These devices are metal plated with raised bumps and are easily detected by a cane or foot and alert a pedestrian when they have reached a street corner.

Ramps at street corners, known as curb cuts, make it easier for wheeled devices to transition from the street to the sidewalk. These ramps will ensure greater access for individuals with disabilities and will also offer benefits for bicyclists, those pushing strollers and carts, or operating a hand truck.

Weekly updates will be provided throughout construction. To sign up for weekly updates, please send an email to kristineXYZbigskypublicrelationsABCcom.
