Virtual Open House for Billings Bypass
November 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is hosting an in-person open house and a virtual public meeting to update the public on the status of the design and construction of the Billings Bypass arterial roadway that will connect Lockwood and Billings Heights. Both virtual and in-person options will provide the same information; the public is invited to attend whichever is their preference.
The virtual public meeting will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 2:00 pm on Zoom. Visit the website at https://www.mdt.mt.gov/pubinvolve/billingsbypass to register for the meeting. Pre-registration is required to attend.
Both meetings will provide the same information and will address the following updates for the project:
Schedule Update: The Railroad Overpass segment is now scheduled for construction in 2022. This adjustment will allow for public use of the new river crossing after the completion of the Railroad Overpass using a temporary connection to Coulson Road. Construction of the Johnson Lane Interchange has been moved to 2023 to allow for additional property owner coordination. This schedule update is not anticipated to impact the overall project completion date.
Design Update: An update to the ongoing Johnson Lane Interchange is planned to include a four-way intersection to provide easy access to the Frontage Road. The project is planned to include work on adjacent streets to improve traffic flow through the interchange. This will include the widening of Johnson Lane and Old Hardin Road and realignment work on Sannon Boulevard, Cole Street, Becraft Lane, and North Frontage Road.
