Bonner-Turah Pedestrian Trail is a CTEP project through Montana’s Department of Transportation and Missoula County. TLI provided full project management including but not limited to design, contract management and construction oversight. Designs for both Phases were completed in accordance with CTEP, AASHTO, ADA, and MDT Standards. Due to the existing drainage features and topography, creative solutions, including retaining walls and drainage piping systems were developed to maintain a safe corridor for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Phase I consisted of a shared use pathway, approximately 1 mile in length. The first half was concrete with two railroad crossings and the second half was asphalt surfaced. Additional improvements included: ADA appurtenances, signage, bridge crossing improvements, retaining walls, and conduit crossings to accommodate for future utilities and lighting. TLI provided a detailed topographic map, and Right-Of-Way Retracement of Highway 210 and Rustic Road between Bonner and the Turah exit of Interstate 90.
Phase II is approximately 5 miles of shared use pathway including a gravel equestrian trail and two railroad crossings. Additional improvements include: concrete and asphalt surfacing, drainage improvements (culverts, sumps, curb and gutter), signage, and retaining walls.
