Bridge completion expected in September
August 6, 2020
After opening one lane of the Clark Fork River bridge a week early, progress continues just west of Trout Creek.
The bridge is limited to vehicles 10 feet wide or less and is expected to remain in single-lane status through August. Crews are pouring concrete and will be removing scaffolding under the bridge within the next week or two, according to Brandon Coates, a consulant for the Montana Department of Transportation.
The project is expected to be finished in September. Live video updates can be seen at http://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/clarkforkbridge/.
