The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and its consultant, DOWL, are designing the Belgrade - Intersection Improvements project. The Belgrade - Intersection Improvements project will enhance intersection safety features in Belgrade along Jackrabbit Lane and Amsterdam Road. This project will improve traffic operations and pedestrian accessibility to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) design standards. Improvements will include upgrading the existing traffic signals by adding flashing yellow arrows and retroreflective backplates at the following intersections:
- Amsterdam Road with Thorpe Road.
- Amsterdam Road with Interstate 90 (I 90) Eastbound Ramps.
- Amsterdam Road with Jackrabbit Lane.
- Jackrabbit Lane with I 90 Westbound Ramps.
ADA improvements will also be included at the private right-in, right-out approach to the Flying J Travel Plaza and the I 90 Eastbound Slip Ramp from Jackrabbit Lane. The project will also review both signal and roundabout options at the intersection of North Broadway and Main Street. A full reconstruction of the intersection is being considered.
The west segment of the Amsterdam Road and Thorpe Road intersection is planned to be widened to three lanes to connect to the Amsterdam Road Intersection Improvements.
