The slow journey to a changed and hopefully improved Russell Street continues.  WGM Group and HDR will provide engineering and design services for the Russell Street and South 3rd West reconstruction.  The Montana Department of Transportation selection process to select a design firm is over.  The WGM proposal is available at:

Their proposal described extensive public involvement opportunities and interesting initial ideas about how to approach the big project and redesign the Russell St. bridge.

The designated preferred alternatives from the Record of Decision includes four travel lanes and a center median/turn lane on Russell Street, and two travel lanes and a center median/turn lane on South 3rd Street.  Major intersections on Russell Street and South 3rd Street would be controlled with signals.  The proposed project also includes a new Clark Fork bridge, accommodation of alternative transportation modes through increased trail connectivity and access, sidewalks, curb and gutter, boulevards, bicycle lanes, and stormwater drainage.

The Record Of Decision is available for downloading online (10MB PDF file).

The Russell Street Final Environmental Impact Statement has been due for release since the Autumn of 2010. Watch for additional information regarding the public comment period and your opportunities to express Missoula’s needs and desires for this improtant travel corridor.
