Edgewood and Texas Reconstruction Project

Texas Edg logo FINALThe City of Whitefish is reconstructing Edgewood Place & Texas Avenue. The City has selected the engineering firm of Robert Peccia & Associates (RPA) to assist them with project management, public involvement, surveying and civil engineering. The project will generally include roadway reconstruction, a bicycle/pedestrian path, decorative street lighting and drainage improvements.

The Edgewood & Texas Reconstruction Project will consist of reconstructing Texas Avenue from Edgewood Place to the northern city limits and Edgewood Place from Colorado Avenue to the eastern city limits. The total length of the project is approximately 5,650 linear feet. Edgewood will be constructed during the summer of 2021 and it is anticipated Texas Ave will be constructed the summer of 2022.

Construction Update September 17, 2021

To facilitate planned roadway reconstruction efforts, the City of Whitefish will be extending the Edgewood Place closure to include the area from Wisconsin Avenue to Colorado Avenue starting Saturday, September 18th, 2021 at 8:00 AM. This additional segment of Edgewood Place will remain closed for approximately 10 days and is planned to reopen to the public on approximately Monday, September 27th, 2021. The existing signed detour will be modified to direct traffic upon Wisconsin Avenue rather than Colorado Avenue. The detour will convey traffic around the construction zone utilizing portions of Wisconsin Avenue, Denver Street, and Texas Avenue.  Please direct questions regarding the project to Brandon Theis, PE – Project Manager at btheis@rpa-kal.com or 406-752-5025.

Construction Update August 10, 2021:

Due to water and storm drainage pipe delays, City of White- fish and White’s Civil Contracting agreed to a CONSTRUC- TION SHUTDOWN that started at noon on Tuesday, July 13th, 2021.  The ongoing pipe delays are largely due to Covid-19 production impacts, high demand for plastic pipe, and plastic pipe resin shortages.

White’s Civil Contracting has secured some water main pipe and will RESUME CONSTRUCTION on Tuesday, August 10ᵗʰ. It is uncertain at this time if further material delays will result in future shutdowns.

Edgewood Place, from Colorado Avenue to Texas Avenue, will be closed starting Tuesday, August 10ᵗʰ.   Please follow all posted traffic control signage and be on the lookout for changing site conditions.
