Last Wednesday was an important day for the Montana Department of Transportation Whitehall South Project.

According to Melissa Shannon of Strategies 360, as of the 4th of July the Capp Lane detour south of Whitehall was no longer in effect.

Shannon said traffic will be restored to MT 55 and will utilize the new bridge over Pipestone Creek. The 20,000 pound load limit no longer applies however, a 10-foot width restriction remains in effect.

The project is scheduled to be substantially completed in October and fully complete in July next year. The cost for the project is $7.4 million.
