Pleasant Valley Road Relocation Project

FHWA FLAP Program to fund Relocation of 2.2 miles Pleasant Valley Road in the Lost Trail National Wildlife Refuge west of Kalispell, MT. Pleasant Valley Road provides general access to the refuge as well as a cross linkage route between several county roads. There exists a segment of Pleasant Valley Road located within the historic migration channel of Pleasant Valley Creek as well as a series of ditches constructed to channel Pleasant Valley Creek and drain the wetlands. Phase 1 of the project will remove the Road from the valley of Pleasant Valley Creek in order to allow for the full restoration of almost six miles of Pleasant Valley Creek and 200 acres of wetlands.
