Special Event Traffic

Special Event Traffic

Planned special events such as sporting events and festivals draw large crowds and limit the capacity of a transportation network built for daily traffic. This project was initiated to document existing special event management practices in Montana, to identify the best management practices used in other states, and to provide MDT and local governments with recommendations for improving traffic management strategies.
