Eastside Highway Between Stevensville and Florence

Florence – The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is conducting an open house to present a proposal to rebuild about 5.8 miles of Secondary Highway 203 (Eastside Highway) between Stevensville and Florence. The project begins at reference post 4.0, about 3.7 miles north of Stevensville. It extends northerly 5.8 miles to reference post 10.1, about 0.2 miles south of Hidden Valley Road.

The open house in Florence will start at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, in the old gymnasium at the Florence-Carlton School (5602 Old Highway 93). While there will be no formal presentation, drawings of the project will be displayed and MDT staff will be on hand to discuss the project and answer questions.

Ride of Silence LogoBWAM will be hosting the 9th Annual Missoula Ride of Silence on May 20, 2015 beginning at the Missoula County Courthouse on Broadway. Please plan to arrive by 6:00pm for the 7:00pm ride that will travel approximately 6.5 miles. See the worldwide Ride of Silence website for more information  about this 12th anniversary ride and background about this important worldwide event.

We ride in silence to commemorate those bicyclists killed or injured in a crash with a motor vehicle and to promote safe, legal, and courteous travel in the greater Missoula area.

Helmets will be required and while we invite riders of all levels, only bicycles and adult tricycles will be permitted and all riders must be comfortable riding for at least 1 hour at 12 miles per hour.

In addition to the Ride of Silence, BWAM will be organizing a simultaneous Walk of Silence. If you are not comfortable biking the 6.5 miles on busy streets, please consider joining others for a 1.6 mile walk to remember those pedestrians who have been killed or injured due to a motor vehicle crash.

Link to our Contact Form and select Ride of Silence to ask a question about how you can participate or help with the event.
