The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF) and the City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) are proposing to improve the functional condition of Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei (Brotherhood Bridge Trail). Proposed improvements would include:

  • Replacing the pedestrian bridge at Montana Creek to provide a larger span for more natural stream movement and to allow emergency and maintenance vehicle use
  • Armoring Montana Creek streambanks to increase the expected life of the new bridge
  • Trail reconstruction including repairing subgrade in select areas
  • Repaving the trail
  • Replacing and/or adding drainage culverts

Construction is projected to begin in the summer of 2023 and would take 3-4 months. Loud noise associated with pile driving may be heard up to half-a-mile away from the Montana Creek Bridge during construction. Kaxdigoowu Héen Dei will be closed to thru traffic during construction.
