Kootenai Falls Swinging Bridge

Kootenai Falls Swinging Bridge Hovering 35 feet above the raging rapids of Kootenai River in northwestern Montana, Kootenai Falls Swinging Bridge presents an incredible tourism destination and a major attraction to the Libby and Troy communities. After parking directly off Highway 2, a short trail provides passage to the Swinging Bridge and breathtaking Kootenai Falls. Managed by the US Forest Service, the bridge was originally built in 1937 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, to provide access for firefighters to the north side of the river.

Hauser Dam Survey

Hauser Dam Survey NorthWestern Energy’s Hauser Dam is a hydroelectric facility on the Missouri River 14 miles northeast of Helena. This original steel spillway was under construction starting in 1905 and completed in 1907. A year later, it failed. A second, 700-foot long and 80-foot high concrete spillway reopened in 1911 and is still in existence today. The project required Morrison-Maierle to replace the old horizontally-designed turbine with a new vertically-designed version in the power house that was built in the early 1900s. In order to design a space for the new vertical turbine, the team tried to use the 1900-era drawings, which had toRead More →

The two requests represented the largest combined ballot request in the history of the Kalispell School District 5, and would bring all schools up toRead More →
