The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) will conduct a public open house to discuss the roundabout planned for the intersection of Rimrock Rd. and 62nd St. W. in Billings. Project team members will be in attendance to discuss the project, hear concerns, and answer questions.
The public open house will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6th, at the Sanderson Stewart office, 1300 N Transtech Way, Billings. The event will be an open house with no formal presentation, and the public is encouraged to attend at their convenience and visit the exhibits.
The purpose of this project is to reduce high severity crashes and improve the safety of the intersection of Rimrock Rd. and 62nd St. W. Due to the many crashes that have occurred at the cluster of the three intersections formed by Rimrock Rd. and 62nd St. W., MDT is eliminating two of the intersections, abandoning the existing curve between Rimrock Rd. and 62nd St. W. (Molt curve), and building a single roundabout at the intersection of Rimrock Rd. and 62nd St. W. to improve safety.
The project will include the following design elements:
New asphalt surfacing
Paved and striped median
Curb and gutter
New signing and striping
Sidewalks and boulevards to connect ramps
Raised roadway grade
