A WORK IN PROGRESS
Sanderson Stewart is currently working on a joint project between the City of Bozeman and the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) for the redesign of Kagy Boulevard from South 19th Avenue to Willson Avenue. The project includes topographic survey, traffic analysis, evaluation of roundabouts vs. signals, grade separated pedestrian accommodations, environmental review, design of roadway improvements to MDT standards and assistance with right-of-way acquisition. The project has required a comprehensive stakeholder involvement process to inform the City, MDT, MSU, the Museum of the Rockies and the general public about project plans and alternatives.
AS BOTH BOZEMAN AND MSU’S ENROLLMENT
GROW, THE KAGY BLVD WIDENING AND WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT ADDRESS CRUCIAL CAPACITY NEEDS
The full Kagy Boulevard Reconstruction project referenced above was delayed due to funding, and during that time the City of Bozeman elected to design and construct interim improvements to help address some of the capacity issues. Sanderson Stewart completed the design and construction administration services for widening Kagy Boulevard to a three-lane cross-section from 7th Avenue to 11th Avenue. Completed in August 2017, the project also included a water main replacement to upgrade the existing 6-inch main to a new 10-inch main from 11th Avenue to Greek Week (approximately 2,200 LF). This project required close coordination with MSU and the Museum of the Rockies to ensure adequate access and temporary water during construction.
