Kalispell-based construction firm LHC was awarded the contract to build the industrial rail park off Whitefish Stage Road.
The Kalispell City Council on June 19 unanimously agreed to pay the local contractor $11.22 million to construct the new Glacier Rail Park, a 43-acre property that is pivotal to the city’s core area redevelopment project.
Kalispell City Manager Doug Russell said the rail park could break ground as early as July.
“We’re very excited,” Jeff Claridge, a Kalispell native and vice president of LHC, told the Beacon. “It’s local. And it’s another big change for the community, taking the rail out of downtown and putting it in the rail park. We’re excited to be a part of that.”
