November 12th, 2014

KLJ has been awarded a 2014 Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Montana (ACEC/MT) for their work on the Reserve Loop to US 93 segment of the Kalispell Bypass Project.

It also connects travelers to north Kalispell’s growing commercial district while eliminating as much as 15 minutes of travel time. The segment created a wider, more functional intersection between US 93 and S-548 and alleviated the congestion in the busy area. The result is a safer route around Kalispell that connects to a growing commercial district. The Kalispell Bypass project is a 20 year effort by Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) to create a major north-south running US highway in western Montana. KLJ provided the design for roads, drainage, traffic signals, retaining walls and right-of-way services for the Reserve Loop to US 93 segment, which was completed in November 2013. KLJ assisted with environmental re-evaluations for the overall project and prepared plans, specs […] Learn More
