Outreach materials:

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) conducted virtual public meetings to discuss the Billings Bypass project.

MDT and design team representatives provided a general project overview and timeline with additional detail on the ongoing Railroad Overpass and Johnson Lane Interchange project segment designs. A question and answer session followed the project information.

New right-of-way acquisitions are anticipated on the project. Project team members will be in contact with affected property owners to offer additional information.

Questions or comments can be directed to Public Involvement Manager Lisa Olmsted at or 406-294-9668.

MDT is using virtual meetings rather than in-person meetings due to concerns about community health and safety during COVID-19. MDT together with its construction contracting partners are taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. Construction projects on Montana’s roads and bridges are considered an “essential” operation and will move forward as scheduled in 2020. For more information visit
