The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and the City of Bozeman, in cooperation with Montana State University (MSU), the Museum of the Rockies, and other stakeholders, have initiated a project to reconstruct Kagy Boulevard from South 19th Avenue to Willson Avenue.
The project is still in the early planning stages. Additional public engagement opportunities are planned for this spring and the Bozeman City Commission is scheduled to discuss the project in two Work Sessions (dates TBD) throughout that time.
South Bozeman is expected to experience significant growth as enrollment at MSU increases and additional housing is planned for the city. Kagy Boulevard is the primary east-west route in this area and will be expected to serve a large portion of the developing community.
The Kagy Blvd – S. 19th to Wilson project will correct the existing deficiencies in the corridor. Proposed improvements include the addition of sidewalks, high-quality bicycle infrastructure, and lighting where none currently exists and improved upon in the areas where they do. Intersections will be reconstructed with enhanced safety features and pavement will be fully replaced for the first time in the history of Kagy Boulevard. Stormwater management will be added to improve environmental quality.
The project will also consider adding additional vehicular capacity in an effort to serve projected growth with similar quality of service as Bozeman has experienced in the past.
The Kagy Boulevard planning project has been progressing behind the scenes while gathering input from many community partners. MDT and engineering firm, Sanderson Stewart, are now revisiting traffic projections to identify the best solutions for this highly complex area with many competing safety and operational needs. While it may seem quiet, know we are working and happy to hear from you.
As MDT and Sanderson Stewart continue planning efforts, Big Sky Public Relations will keep those interested up to date. This webpage will house project information and outreach materials. Please reach out to
