would like to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to
upgrade the signal at Rodney Street and 11th Avenue. In addition, a

The purpose of the
project is to improve the operations for motorists and pedestrians at
Rodney Street and 11th Avenue in Helena and to review the necessity
of the signalized intersection at Sanders Street and 11th Avenue
based on future needs.
