House move to impact some electric customers

Print Article

Beginning at approximately 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 13, some members of Flathead Electric Cooperative in the Columbia Falls areas of Chub Lane, Witty Lane and Tamarack Lane may experience an interruption in electrical service due to a two-stage house relocation from Columbia Falls to Kalispell. Movers are planning to transport the 24-foot structure to Half Moon Road in the morning, where it will be parked until transporting resumes at 10 p.m. to avoid interfering with daytime traffic patterns.

At that point, the house will move east on U.S. 2 East to Montana 206, then south to Berne Road. Eventually movers will make their way to Montana 35 then to Montford Road with the ultimate destination of a field near Jaquette Road. For safety reasons, the move will require Flathead Electric to temporarily disconnect power as the building travels intermittently along a path of power lines.

The estimated duration of the service interruption for those in the vicinity of Halfmoon Road near Montana 40 will be approximately an hour, but most members should only be impacted for 30 minutes or less. The transport company would like to thank members for their patience and apologize for any inconvenience.
