Construction of sidewalks to connect East Helena schools planned

The Montana Department of Transportation is proposing the construction of 3,200 feet of sidewalk on the north side of East Helena near the public schools.

Proposed work includes construction of ADA-compliant concrete sidewalk. The purpose of the project is to connect Eastgate School with East Valley Middle School, and provide continuous sidewalk for students from Radley Elementary to travel south on North Montana Avenue sidewalk.

The project is being funded with Federal Highway Administration Transportation Alternative funds and East Helena School District matching funds.
