Montana Department of Transportation Schedules Second Open House to Discuss 27th Street Railroad Crossing in Billings

BILLINGS – The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) is conducting an open house public meeting to discuss the status of an ongoing feasibility study to determine short- and long-term solutions for the existing at-grade railroad crossing on 27th Street in downtown Billings. 

The open house will be held in two sessions in Billings on Monday, April 29, at the Billings Public Library Community Room (510 N. Broadway). The first session will run from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. and the second session from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. The public is invited to visit project displays, ask questions and provide comments on the project. Project team members will be available during the open house to discuss the project.

The detailed feasibility study is considering, at minimum, traffic operational and engineering analysis, safety, railroad coordination, bicycle/pedestrian facilities, Americans With Disabilities Act needs, environmental issues, geometric considerations, right-of-way, utilities, stakeholder input, and impacts to adjacent buildings and businesses.
