Billings Council Members Approve Agreements

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Billings City Council members pass an agreement with Montana Rail Link over a downtown pedestrian bridge. They approved the easement cost and a construction and maintenance agreement with MRL that outlines how much MRL will spend on their end of the project that includes removing tracks.

Wyeth Friday, the City/County Planning Division Manager, says in a couple of months, bids will go out for construction of the bridge placement. If it works out, the bridge could be in place this summer or fall. When it's finished, it will connect Montana and Minnesota Avenues.

City Council members also approved an $86,000 contract for a downtown-parking plan.

The Charter Amendment during last November's elections failed to create a parking commission, so the city decided to look at finding a company that could come up with a strategic parking plan. Kimley/Horn was given the contract for that plan.
