The Montana Department of Transportation is improving traffic operations and enhancing safety features at the intersection of North 7th Avenue and Griffin Drive just north of Interstate 90 in Bozeman.
Construction is expected to begin in summer 2023 and be substantially completed this fall.
- New turn lanes.
- Durable concrete pavement.
- ADA-compliant sidewalk.
- Bicycle accommodations.
- Curb, gutter, and storm drainage.
- Traffic signals and lighting.
Why is the project needed?
The intersection handles a large amount of traffic due to its proximity to businesses and residential areas. North 7th Avenue also connects Bozeman to Belgrade and other communities. Traffic stacking and congestion at the intersection causes significant delays for motorists turning left from Griffin Drive onto North 7th Avenue.
Stay Informed During Construction
Communication with the public is important to MDT and the success of the project. The community will be notified about construction and traffic activities, at key project milestones throughout the construction process. MDT will notify the public through the project website, local media, mailings, social media, and email and text notifications.
Current construction information and road conditions can be found on the MDT Travel Info App.
