Headwaters Rest Area logo

This project is in response to a request received from community leaders to relocate the Bozeman rest area due to limited space and opportunity for expansion to meet demand and safety needs. In response to that and paired with a public/private partnership “property trade” idea posed to MDT, the taxpayers of Montana will receive a new, state-of-the-art rest area at very low cost. The location in close proximity to the intersection of I 90 and US 287 also offers a more logical location for the traveling public.

TranPlanMT 2017 public involvement received identified improving rest area availability and condition as a high priority.
