Lewis and Clark County approves ARPA funds for temporary fixes to Country Club Avenue

Lewis and Clark County commissioners unanimously approved $360,390 in federal ARPA funds on two projects Thursday for what was described as temporary improvements to Country Club Avenue, saying the action was the culmination of years of efforts for fixes to the roadway dotted with potholes that the military based at nearby Fort Harrison considers a Defense Access Route.

“This is not a permanent fix,” Commissioner Candace Payne said. “This is a creative temporary solution.”

Country Club Avenue serves as the main artery that runs by the Archie Bray Foundation, Green Meadow Country Club and Spring Meadow Lake State Park.

A road sign reads “ROUGH ROAD AHEAD” on Country Club Avenue in Helena.

The first project, awarded to Helena Sand and Gravel for its low bid of $274,316.50, consists of a 2-inch asphalt overlay from the city/county boundary to the Williams Street intersection. It will be paid for with funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. The work is scheduled to be completed before July 20.
