Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Improvement Project Near Intersection of
Airport Road and Main Street

BILLINGS — The Montana Department of
Transportation (MDT) would like to notify the public of a proposal to
improve roadway segments and intersections near the intersection of
Airport Road and Main Street in Billings. 

The project includes
roadway sections and intersections on Airport Road from the Aronson
Avenue overpass to Main Street, Airport Road between Main Street and
Bench Boulevard, Main Street from 6th Avenue North to Lake Elmo
Drive, and Aronson Avenue between Alkali Creek Road and Main Street.

The project is now entering into design of the recommended
alternative from the “Airport Road and Main Street Intersection
Concept Study,” which was completed by MDT in 2016. More information
on the study can be found here:

Proposed work includes
lane modifications, roadway widening, median work, minor realignments
and upgrades to curb, gutter, Americans With Disabilities Act
facilities, pavement, lighting, pavement markings, signing and
signalized intersections.

The purpose of the project is to address
the capacity and queuing issues, safety and mobility needs, signal
upgrade needs, and other operational issues for all users within the
project area.
