A WORK IN PROGRESS
Sanderson Stewart is working on a joint project between the City of Bozeman and MDT for the redesign of Kagy Boulevard from South 19th Avenue to Willson Avenue. The project has included topographic survey, traffic analysis, evaluation of roundabouts vs. signals, grade-separated pedestrian accommodations, extensive public involvement, environmental process and review, and concept designs of road features, landscaping, pedestrian and bicycle improvements. The project required a comprehensive stakeholder involvement process to inform the City, MDT, MSU, the Museum of the Rockies, special interest groups, and the general public about project plans and alternatives. The full reconstruction project was delayed due to funding, but it is anticipated that the design process will continue to move forward with construction planned in the next five years.
AS BOTH BOZEMAN AND MSU’S ENROLLMENT
GROW, THE KAGY BLVD WIDENING AND WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT ADDRESS CRUCIAL CAPACITY NEEDS
Due to delays in moving forward with the full reconstruction project referenced above, the City of Bozeman elected to design and construct interim improvements to Kagy Boulevard to help address capacity issues. Sanderson Stewart completed the design and provided construction management services for widening Kagy Boulevard to a threelane cross-section from 7th Avenue to 11th Avenue. Completed in August 2017, the project also included a water main replacement and other related improvements.
