Bridge Improvement Project


Flathead County has identified four bridges in need of improvements, rehabilitation, or replacement due to age and condition. The bridges have various deficiencies that must be addressed in the near future; however, all are currently deemed safe for public use by recent inspections. 

The bridges include: 

  • Swift Creek Bridge for Delrey Road
  • Baker Ave Bridge over the Whitefish River
  • Whitefish Stage Rd Bridge over the Stillwater River
  • Dry Creek Bridge for Kiwanis Ln (Flathead River)

The goal of the current project is to complete robust planning and preliminary engineering activities for each bridge to develop repair and replacement recommendations. The work will also serve as a foundation to help apply for future construction grant funding to implement the recommended improvements. 

Stay Involved

Public input on the bridge projects is important to Flathead County and its partners. Two in-person public meetings will be held in the April/May 2024 time frame with exact dates and times to be announced on this web page. One meeting will be held in the Whitefish area and the other in the Kalispell area. The purpose of the meetings will focus on updates from the project team and solicitation of feedback from the community. The public can submit comments anytime and join the project’s email list by sending an email to the project team at publicinfoofficer(at)
