The purpose of this project was to understand Missoulian’s lived experience of Reserve Street and what they believe would improve their experience. The project also intended to create a process for dialogue between members of the community and transportation staff to facilitate increased awareness of ongoing efforts, responsibility, and planning.

The City of Missoula and the Missoula Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), in collaboration with the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT), are studying Higgins Avenue between Brooks Street and Broadway Street to develop a corridor plan. The plan will evaluate design options to improve safety and access for people driving, biking, walking, and riding the bus. The goal is to create a modern transportation system that enhances the economic vitality of the corridor and serves as a gateway to downtown Missoula. So, we want to hear your great ideas for improving this important connection. Please visit Engage Missoula to provide comment on your ideas for this project!
The County of Missoula and the Missoula Metropolitan Planning Organization have begun The Missoula County Pathways and Trails planning process. The plan will direct development and ongoing maintenance of pathways and trails and similar facilities to increase active transportation outside the City of Missoula.
The overarching goal is to understand the extent of pathway and trail needs, from development through maintenance, and the resources required to meet those needs. This will lead to strategic development of new facilities as well as implementation of a maintenance regimen upon completion. Please click here to visit the project page.
City Hall has reopened to the public, however all visitors are required to check in at the Security Desk at the Ryman Street entrance. To schedule an appointment with transportation staff please contact Bella Dowell at firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 552-6674.
