Construction crews are working diligently to safely complete the drainage, roadway, and pedestrian improvements along East Holly Street. The past three months have focused on installing a storm drainage pipe, irrigation pipe, and coordinating utilities in the project area. Below are a few photos capturing the progress along the project site.
Work on the storm drain construction will wrap up by the middle of this week. Once the storm drain work is completed, the installation of manholes between 3rd Ave and Central Ave will begin. Today the closure on East Holly is expected to shift to the east side of Central Ave to the west side of 3rd Ave.
Truck Traffic: Truck traffic will detour to Central Ave and 14th St SE. Signage will guide truck traffic along the detour. A detour map can be found on the project website: www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/eastholly. For truck traffic heading to Sidney Sugars, special signage has been put in place to direct traffic along the detour to Sidney Sugars.
Non-Truck Traffic: A detour route will not be established for non-truck traffic during the 2-block closures of East Holly Street. Motorists should utilize alternative streets during closures.
