Multimodal Traffic Study
The City of Helena has developed a multimodal traffic study to examine the five-point intersections of Lyndale Avenue/Montana Avenue/Helena Avenue and Last Chance Gulch/Helena Avenue/Neill Avenue as well as the corridors connecting the Downtown and Midtowne areas of Helena. The purpose of the study was to identify feasible improvement options to enhance multimodal safety, connectivity, access, mobility, and appeal within the study area.
The study recommends a range of short-term and long-term strategies to facilitate travel by supporting modal choice, improving the function and circulation of key intersections, enabling access for disabled individuals, and providing enhanced comfort and visual appeal for all users. The draft study is available for public review at https://www.helenamt.gov/public-works-projects, and study recommendations are summarized here.
A virtual informational meeting will be held to present recommended improvements, answer questions, and collect feedback. Two meeting times will be offered, starting with a brief presentation, and followed by a question/answer period. The presentation at each meeting will be identical. Please attend whichever time is most convenient for you. A video recording of the meeting will be posted to the website for those unable to attend the live presentation.
Public participation is an important part of the planning process. Please forward this invitation to others who may be interested in the study. Comments on the draft study are requested by February 19, 2021. You can submit comments by email to: [email protected], by phone at 406-447-5005, or by mail at 3147 Saddle Drive, Helena, MT 59601.
