State Park Road Reconstruction

Project Description

The City of Whitefish is reconstructing State Park Road, from Lion Mountain Road to the Railroad Crossing. The City has selected the engineering firm of Robert Peccia and Associates (RPA) to assist them with project management, public involvement, surveying and civil engineering. The project will include roadway reconstruction, a bicycle/pedestrian path and drainage improvements. 


  • Phase I was completed to Haugen Heights Road in November 2019
  • Work on Phase II will begin in April 2020
  • City construction activities have ended for the summer and will resume after Labor Day. Detour A will be in place through Labor Day as utility companies work to install power, gas, phone, and cable.

Winter 2020 Update

Paving on State Park Road took place the week of 11/2 and the roadway is now open to two-way traffic.  City staff is optimistic that the contractor will be able to reach substantial completion before winter shutdown, but some significant items remain at the time of this update.  This work includes approximately 1,500 feet of shared use path, feState Park IMG_2700ncing along the golf course, topsoil, and completion of the lighting system. To date we have paid LHC $1.96M of a $2.76M contract.
