The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) issued a Record of Decision (ROD) for the Billings Bypass project. The ROD names Phase 1 of the Preferred Alternative (Mary Street Option 2) as described in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), as the selected alternative. This alternative will provide a 5.15-mile-long two-lane roadway connection across the Yellowstone River between I 90 and Old Hwy 312. Secondary corridor improvements associated with this alternative include reconstruction of Five Mile Road to MDT standards, and construction of a new segment of Five Mile Road extending from Dover Road to Old Hwy 312.
