Project Overview

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and CK May Excavating are improving traffic operations and enhancing safety features at the intersection of North 7th Avenue with Griffin Drive just north of Interstate 90 (I 90) in Bozeman.

Construction began in summer 2023 and was substantially completed later that year. Crews will return in 2024 to apply final pavement markings.

Improvements completed in 2023 include:

  • New turn lanes.
  • Durable concrete pavement.
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant sidewalk.
  • Bicycle accommodations.
  • Curb, gutter, and storm drainage.
  • Traffic signals and lighting.

Why is the project needed?

The intersection handles a large amount of traffic due to its closeness to businesses and residential areas. North 7th Avenue also connects Bozeman to Belgrade and other surrounding communities. Traffic stacking and congestion at the intersection causes significant delays for motorists turning left from Griffin Drive onto North 7th Avenue.

Stay Informed During Construction

Communication with the public is important to MDT and the success of the project. The community will be notified about construction and traffic activities, at key project milestones throughout the construction process. MDT will notify the public through the project website, local media, mailings, social media, and email and text notifications.

Current construction information and road conditions can be found on the MDT Travel Info App.
