Striping Changes

Following chip and seal treatment of the streets below and after the chips are allowed to settle for two to three weeks, crews will sweep up the chips and apply striping in the new configurations described below.

Dore Ln. (Brooks St. to McDonald Ave.)

The striping on this section of Dore Ln. will change in order to provide connectivity for bicycles between the other portion of Dore Ln. and the Bitterroot Trail.

High Park Way

The City will add a bike lane in the uphill direction and stripe the designated parking as shown in the graphics below. Bike traveling downhill will share the lane with vehicle traffic, as it does now. The hope is that the new striping will help to slow vehicle traffic and encourage bike travel.

Rattlesnake Dr. (Missoula Ave. to Creek Crossing Rd.)

The following changes to the street will take place:

  • Removal of curb extensions at Pineview Dr. and Mountain View Dr.,
  • Addition of pedestrian-activated Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at Pineview Dr.,
  • Installation of marked crosswalks at Pineview Dr. and Mountain View Dr., and
  • Installation of striping and related pavement markings to legitimize bike lanes.

N. Russell St. (W. Broadway to Railroad St.)

The City will be adding buffered bike lanes on N. Russell St. between Broadway and Howell St. to improve safety for people riding bicycles by providing additional space between the vehicle travel lane and the bike lane. The striping reconfiguration will include removal of about 18 parking spaces along this portion of N. Russell St. No changes will be made to the striping configuration from Howell St. north—all striping will be replaced as it appears currently.

Other safety improvements include adding marked “piano key” crosswalks across N. Russell St. at the north and south corners of Birch St. and the south corner of Phillips St.

Milling and Paving Projects

See the City's Community Investment Projects (CIP) Map for more infrastructure projects.

High Park Way—39th St. to Whitaker Dr.—Completed

Dates:  May 12 through 24, weather permitting

We ask area residents and other drivers to:

  • Drive slowly and safely.
  • Watch for intermittent detours.
  • Watch for flaggers and follow their directives.
  • Use an alternate route when possible.

Project Description:  Milling machine will be used to remove asphalt. Paving will begin after milling is completed. Striping will be replaced once weather conditions are warm enough.


Other Milling and Paving Projects 

Details on these projects will be provided once available. Also, this list could change once work begins.

  • 26th St.:  North Ave. to Central Ave.

Intermittent Milling, Paving, and Overlay Projects

Work on these streets will be done in areas that are most in need of repair, so an entire street may not have work done on it. The type of work completed on a street will depend on what is most appropriate for addressing the pavement issue.
