Current Projects

 The City of Glendive follows the Montana Public Works Standards and Specifications, 6th edition dated April, 2010.

-Wastewater Treatment Facility   The Water Resource & Recovery Facility went online in late December 2015 and is performing very well, meeting discharge permit requirements.  We are now receiving and treating the wastewater from the west side of the Yellowstone River through Dawson County's new liftstation and force main.
-Meade Avenue Water/Sewer upgrade   in 2017Western Municipal Const. completed pipe installation, street grading and paving on the first phase.  The next phase of  Water & Sewer replacement will take place prior to MDT's curb and final paving in 2019.  Knife River is the general contractor and Western Municipal will again be the water & sewer contractor.  It promises to be a busy summer but it will all be worth it when Meade Ave has new infrastructure and paving this fall.
-Sidewalk/Curb project   EHC, LLC has completed the curb/sidewalk project with the exception of some punch list items to be discussed  in September 2018. May 2019 final asphalt patching was completed along curbs
- Maple Avenue Sewer replacement  The City's own Public Works Utility workers recently replaced 300 feet of 8" clay sewer pipe with 8" PVC on the 100 block of Maple Ave.  This eliminated several unused sewer taps that were allowing tree roots to infest the sewer main.                                  

-Urban Pavement Preservation  The City of Glendive came up with, wrote and sponsored Senate Bill 111 getting Glendive and two other Montana Cities into the MDT Urban Program.  Public Works then rated the qualifying streets on conditon and nominated them for the preservation work.  MDT has begun the Urban Pavement Preservation work with Century Construction in Glendive.   This will involve crack seal, mill & fill, seal & cover on qualified streets within the City.  This work is extending into Spring 2019.
-City Paving bid   The City hired Interstate Engineering to assist with the design & bidding on several unpaved streets in the City.  This includes Colorado Blvd to the Law Enforcement Center, Washington Drive where it connects to Colorado, and Wyoming Avenue.  These will be paid for  by SID on the fronting property owners.  This was completed April 2019.
-Water Plant Improvements   Great West Engineering has been contracted to design and guide the City through the process of demolishing the old Northern Pacific Rwy settling tanks and treatment buildings next to the Towne St bridge.  A new building will be erected on the site containig new dual solids contact units and all of the associated chemical storage, lime storage and injection points.  The existing water plant controls will be updated integrating the existing plant processes with the new processes.  
UPDATE - Hanson Independent from Sidney completed the demolition to the old buildings in early January 2019.   Over 5 million pounds of concrete were hauled during the demolition process. 
Five general contractors were pre-approved to bid for the construction of the new facilities and bids were advertised on Feb 7, 2019.  The bid opening was March 14 in Helena at the office of Great West Engineering.
The low bidder was Swanberg Construction, Valley City, ND.  We look forward to working with the crew from Swanberg Construction and their subs to complete this very neccessary project.
-Glendive/Glasgow ADA upgrades  This is an MDT design-build project with Stahly Engineeringinvolving Merrill Ave from Power St north to Griswold St.  It will involve upgrading the sidewalk ADA corners to
current standards as well as replacing some sections of sidewalk.
