BILLINGS - Bench Blvd. is closed to through traffic from Lincoln Lane to Hilltop Road with some side streets also closed due to this project. The intersection of Hilltop and Bench is open with traffic flow similar to the future roundabout. Remember, working activities and obstacles continue in the center of the future roundabout and require caution. Watch for changing conditions, dirt and gravel surfaces with flaggers and signage throughout the work zone.
On Rimrock Road, look for continued miscellaneous road work from Rehberg Lane to Zimmerman Trail with no through traffic from Zimmerman to 38th Street and single lane traffic only and a rough road from 38th to Shiloh. Use a different route when possible.
Avenue E is closed due to building construction from 17th Street West to 15th Street West also expect traffic control devices on 17th Street West from Avenue E to Avenue D. Slow down throughout this busy construction area.
Broadwater Avenue still has single lane traffic only from 19th Street West to 24th Street West with the intersection of Broadwater and 19th open.
Look for work to continue on Montana Avenue from 5th Street West to North 18th Street. Currently work consists of curb, gutter and sidewalk replacement and can create single lane traffic, a 25 mph speed limit and workers and equipment throughout the work zone.
Hesper Road remains closed to all through traffic from Gabel Road to Shiloh Road.
The far left lane remains blocked on Montana Avenue from North 29th Street to North 27th Street. Remember, no left turn is permitted onto 27th from Montana Avenue. Slow down throughout this construction zone.
