Yellowstone River Bridge Construction Progresses



Billings, Montana - As construction moves forward on the Yellowstone
River Bridge segment of the Billings Bypass, the Montana Department
of Transportation (MDT) is providing a live webcam for the public to
view real-time construction progress. Construction of bridge piers
from the temporary work bridge is continuing in anticipation of beam
placement. Construction on the new bridge across the Yellowstone
River is being completed by Wadsworth Brothers Construction and is
planned to be predominantly complete by the end of 2021. The bridge
will ultimately provide motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians a
connection between Lockwood and the Billings Heights.



Work zone
safety reminder: The Yellowstone River Bridge construction zone is
closed to the public out of concern for public safety. Members of the
public interested in viewing progress may watch the construction
webcam available on the project website
(https://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/billingsbypass/) or from areas
within Dover Park accessible to the public. Please be aware of and
comply with trail closure signs for your own safety.



The Montana
Department of Transportation together with its construction
contracting partners continue to take the COVID-19 pandemic very
seriously. Construction projects on Montanas roads and bridges are
considered an "essential" operation and will continue moving forward
as scheduled in 2021. Construction workers will continue several
measures to help keep employees, contractors and the public safe
during the construction season. Some of the measures include
following social distancing and good hygiene guidelines, and not
reporting to work if showing symptoms of illness. For more
