NEW ROOFTOPS, NEW TRAFFIC

Bozeman, Montana, facing historic population growth has struggled to keep up with traffic increases on many of its corridors, as housing and commercial developments take shape all over the city and Gallatin County. 

 

OAK STREET DESIGN RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDES TRAFFIC SIGNALS, ROUNDABOUTS, AND A MULTI-USE PATH

LONG-TERM, GROWTH ORIENTED SOLUTIONS

Sanderson Stewart completed several phases of improvements to the Oak Street corridor. A predesign report for the entire corridor was completed in 2016. Since then, three individual projects have moved forward into final design and construction. They include the segment from Ferguson Avenue to New Holland Drive (construction completed November 2017), the segment from 15th Avenue to 19th Avenue (construction completed June 2018), and the intersection of Oak Street and North 27th Avenue (construction completed in August 2020). Also completed as an amendment to the Oak Street project was the design of the Front Street Pathway, which will be constructed after completion of MDT’s Rouse Avenue reconstruction project. Through our work in the Oak Street corridor, we have gained invaluable experience and an excellent understanding of the City’s expectations and requirements for these types of transportation projects, from the pre-design analysis through design and construction administration.

“[Danielle] Scharf said development is likely to bring about 4,000 new residential units to the area along the corridor, enough to bring traffic volume to a projected 14,500 trips a day between Ferguson and Davis and more than 20,000 trips a day between 19th and 11th avenues.”
