Project Overview

The scope of this project is to develop a feasibility study to determine short and long-term solutions for the existing at-grade railroad crossing on 27th Street in Billings. A high-level study was recently completed (2016 Montana Rail Grade Separation Study), identifying this location as being a high priority for MDT. A more detailed study is now being conducted to identify specific solutions that are fundable and meet the needs at this location.

The detailed feasibility study will consider, at a minimum; traffic operational and engineering analyses, safety, Railroad coordination, bicycle/pedestrian facilities, ADA needs, environmental issues, geometric considerations, right-of-way, utilities, public engagement, stakeholder input and impacts to adjacent buildings.
