The Whitefish Downtown Business District was originally constructed in early 1900’s. While many downtown buildings have been renovated and modernized, much of the public infrastructure is in poor condition and beyond its useful life. This project will improve traffic flow on U.S. Highway 93 in, around, and through downtown Whitefish.
This project will reconstruct two blocks of U.S. Highway 93 in downtown Whitefish, from Spokane Avenue to Baker Avenue including those intersections and transitions beyond the intersections. Improvements include reconstruction of the roadway and adjacent sidewalks; reconstruction of underground utilities within the right-of-way; new streetlights; new highway signage; and the installation of new traffic signals.
The project is funded through a TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) Discretionary Grant that has been awarded to the City of Whitefish by the U.S. Department of Transportation. This grant program is administered under Title XII of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and requirements of the Act do apply.
Public involvement continues to be a priority for the City of Whitefish.
