Mattie V Creek Stream Channel Restoration Award: 2012 Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Montana, Environmental Category (ACEC) Mattie V Creek had been heavily disturbed by changes in land use, specifically timber harvest, road development, and mining activities and was functionally disconnected from its mainstem Ninemile Creek. These changes in land use left Mattie V Creek with dredge piles and depressions that created fish barriers, caused a loss in favorable aquatic habitat, and disconnected the channel from the floodplain and Ninemile Creek. In order to restore Mattie V Creek and reconnect it to Ninemile Creek, Morrison-Maierle managed and completed theRead More →

Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport Expansion and Improvements Morrison-Maierle has been assisting Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport at Gallatin Field with their engineering needs for over 50 years. A 2016 ACEC Montana Engineering Excellence Grand Prize winner coupled with the East Belgrade Interchange, the airport serves Bozeman area residents and travelers to southwest Montana and popular sites like Big Sky and Yellowstone National Park. After 9/11, the airport implemented temporary changes to their existing screening checkpoints, but it became clear that more room was needed to efficiently move passengers through TSA security screening. In addition to the new terminal building, other improvements include a new aircraft parking apron,Read More →

Helena Regional Airport Master Plan Award Winner: 2012 ACEC-Montana Honor Award for Engineering Excellence in the Studies, Research, and Consulting Category Morrison-Maierle completed the Helena Regional Airport’s Master Plan, normally a one to two year process, in nine months to accommodate the Helena Regional Airport Authority’s reauthorization process. The last comprehensive Master Plan for the Helena Regional Airport in Helena, Montana, was prepared in 1975.  Since that time, the airport had managed its growth with isolated improvement plans that focused on specific functions but did not provide long-term integrated solutions.  A comprehensive Master Plan was needed to collectively address a diverse range of issues at theRead More →
