Two major road projects in Billings will include bike/ped facilities

Billings Bypass connects Lockwood to the Heights
Montana Department of Transportation has been working on the Billings Bypass in Lockwood for years, and the final design includes bike/ped facilities along much of the route. The entire project goes from Johnson Lane through Lockwood, over the Yellowstone River and ends at Five Mile Road, extending to Highway 312.

Bike/ped facilities include a unique diverging diamond at the Johnson Lane/I90 Interchange (which includes separate room for pedestrian and bicyclist access in the center), a separated bicycle/pedestrian path on the Yellowstone River bridge and bike lanes on Five Mile Road. ”

 

THANK YOU MONTANA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
for keeping ALL road users in mind when designing roads!
