North 7th Avenue And Griffin Drive Intersection In Bozeman

Montana Department of Transportation to Improve North 7th Avenue and
Griffin Drive Intersection in Bozeman

Bozeman, Montana (July 10,
2019)  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like to
notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to improve the
intersection of North 7th Avenue and Griffin Drive/Mandeville Drive.
The work will extend between 400-800 feet on each leg of the
intersection.  The main improvement will include adding turn lanes,
specifically a dual left turn lane for westbound traffic on Griffin
Drive turning left (south) towards I-90.

Proposed work includes
adding turn lanes, new roadway surfacing, sidewalks, curb and gutter,
storm drain, new traffic signals, signing, striping and landscaping. 
The purpose of the project is to increase the capacity of the
intersection to reduce vehicle queuing.

Construction is tentatively
planned for 2022 depending on completion of design and availability
of funds.  New right-of-way and relocation of utilities will be
required.  MDT staff will contact all affected landowners prior to
doing survey work on their land.  Staff will again contact landowners
prior to construction regarding property acquisition and temporary
construction permits.
