5th Alley EN Sewer Main Replacement Project Map

Project Description:

The City of Kalispell has selected JR Civil to replace sewer main from 4th Ave EN (north of Parkline Trail) to East Center Street, along East Center Street to 5th Alley EN (alley between 4th Ave E and 5th Ave E), and along 5th Alley EN from Center Street to south of 6th St E.  

The work is planned to start in March 2023 and is expected to last until (90 Calendar Days).  NorthWestern Energy will be relocating the gas main in the Alley, from 2nd St E to 6th St E. The gas relocation work is planned to start as early as possible in the Spring of 2023.   Work will begin at approximately 7:00 am and continue to 5:00 pm each day, Monday through Friday.

Work occurring in 4th Ave EN and along East Center St will maintain two-way traffic with one lane traffic controls in place.

Work occurring in the Alley will require sections of the Alley be closed to traffic.  Solid waste containers will be relocated to the street at ends of the alley and moved back into the alley at the completion of construction. Residents who access their driveways in the alley will need to find alternate parking areas on side streets during this time.
