Roundabout Project At Rimrock Road And 62nd Street West



Public is invited to view the proposed Roundabout Project at Rimrock
Road and 62nd Street West in Billings



BILLINGS, Montana. (August 26,
2019) The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) will host an
open house on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 to present information on
the proposed roundabout at the intersection of Rimrock Road and 62nd
Street West of Billings. 



The proposed project includes constructing
a new roundabout at the intersection, as well as new asphalt
surfacing, irrigation and drainage improvements, signing and pavement
markings, intersection lighting, and landscaping. 



Roundabouts are
circular intersections that incorporate a new design that reduces
traffic accidents, traffic delays and traffic speeds. Roundabouts are
installed at selected state roadway intersections to improve safety
and mobility of the traveling public.



The open house will be held
Wednesday, September 4th at Sanderson Stewart, 1300 North Transtech
Way, Billings, MT, between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m.  Project team members
will be available during the open house to discuss the proposed
project and answer questions.



Construction is tentatively planned
for 2021 or 2022 depending on completion of design, right-of-way
acquisition, and availability of funds. New right-of-way and
relocation of utilities will be required. Staff will again contact
landowners prior to construction regarding property acquisition and
temporary construction permits.  



An important part of properly
planning for the future is partnering with the community. Montana
Department of Transportation welcomes the public to provide ideas and
