City to host public meetings on five-point intersections, multimodal traffic study

| Headline

Meetings will be held at noon and 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 10. 

The City of Helena will host two virtual meetings at noon and 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 10, to present recommendations from the draft multimodal traffic study. Both meetings will include the same information and incorporate an opportunity for public feedback.

A video recording of the meeting will be posted to the website for those unable to attend the live presentation. The City will accept comments on the draft study through February 19.  

The study examines 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 Midtown areas of Helena. The purpose of the study is to identify feasible improvement options to enhance multimodal safety, connectivity, access, mobility, and appeal within the study area.

The improvements are intended to address areas of concern identified through evaluation of transportation and environmental conditions in the study area and to reflect the needs and desires voiced through public and stakeholder outreach. The improvements offer 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 while minimizing impacts to adjacent properties and land uses, aligning with the community vision, and enabling reasonable, feasible implementation. The draft study is available for public review at: www.helenamt.gov/public-works-projects.
