Old Yellowstone Trail, Powell County

Part of the Rails-To-Trails national movement to convert decommissioned rail lines to pedestrian friendly routes, Jonathan led the development of the Powell County leg of the trail system that follows the Old Milwaukee Railroad route. Phase 1 of the trail runs from Garrison to south of Rock Creek Cattle Road and was completed in 2019 with Phase 2 connecting to Grant Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site which is currently under construction to be completed in 2022.

Water Intake, City of Laurel

Set on the majestic Yellowstone River, the City of Laurel’s new municipal water intake was completed in 2017.  A bustling suburb of Billings, changes to the river channel and scouring were compromising the City’s ability to draw water for its residents.  As the lead design engineer on the project, Jonathan coordinated multiple design disciplines and subconsultants which played a major role in the Great West team completing a successful project for the City.  Since the project’s completion, City resident fears of a consistent water supply has been eliminated, and the community has a sustainable solution now and into the foreseeable future.

We are incredibly proud of Jonathan and the leader he has become within our firm, the Helena community, and within our industry.  As a firm that values each team member that becomes part of the Great West family, it’s incredibly rewarding to see the outcome of mentoring, professional development, and challenging projects equate to one of our own being selected as one of Helena’s 20 under 40!
