GREAT FALLS — Authorities say a man fell to his death while working on a construction project to replace a bridge that crosses the Two Medicine River.
Glacier County Sheriff Vernon Billedeaux says the 53-year-old man died Monday evening after falling from a bridge abutment.
The Great Falls Tribune reports the man was working on a $24 million project to replace the outdated bridge on U.S. Highway 2 near East Glacier.
Billedeaux declined to release the man's name before the family is notified.
The sheriff says foul play is not suspected, but would not comment on the circumstances surrounding the death.
Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Co. of Draper, Utah, is working on the bridge under a contract with the Montana Department of Transportation.
