I, for one, would LOVE a multi-use bike/pedestrian path that connects Belgrade with Bozeman.  It would be a huge improvement for our communities.
The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT), in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration and in coordination with Gallatin County and the cities of Belgrade and Bozeman, is developing a corridor study of the
Frontage Road between Jackrabbit Lane in Belgrade and the Interstate 90 westbound on- and off-ramps at North 7th Avenue in Bozeman.

This informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 18, in the Lewis/Madison Room of the Best Western Plus GranTree Inn, 1325 North 7th Avenue, in Bozeman. The meeting will begin with an open house at 6:00 p.m. with a presentation to follow at 6:30 p.m. Project team members will be available during the meeting to discuss the study.

The purpose of the meeting is to present the recommended improvement options developed for the corridor and to gather community feedback on the draft corridor planning study report. Beginning April 14, the draft corridor study report may be viewed at:

The Belgrade to Bozeman Frontage Road Corridor Study is a planning-level study and is not a design or construction project. The study allows for early planning-level coordination with the public, stakeholders, and environmental resource agencies. Public input is a very important part of the process, and interested parties are encouraged to attend and participate.
MDT attempts to provide accommodations for any known disability that may interfere with a person’s participation in any service, program or activity of our department. If you require reasonable accommodations to participate in this meeting, please call Katie Potts at (406) 444-9238 at least two days before the meeting.

Comments and concerns may be submitted in writing at the meeting, by mail to Katie Potts, Project Manager, MDT Statewide and Urban Planning,

In support of a bike/pedestrian path?
If you choose to comment at the meeting, it is very important that you emphasize the use of the pathway as a transportation need rather than for recreational use.  For example, you need the pathway to get from point A to point B so that you can bike to church, school, friends, work, restaurants, etc..
It is also important that you comment in writing no later than May 14, 2017Online comment form can be found HERE>>
