Billings Bypass Project Causing Concerns

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A quiet and peaceful street will possibly get a makeover in the near future.

The Montana Department of Transportation released the Final Environmental Impact Statement regarding the Billings Bypass Project.

Residents who live on Mary Street are worried that their once quaint neighborhood will be turned into a commercial road, something that will ruin the area.

Clayton Fiscus lives on Mary Street and says he is against it, along with everyone else that lives on the road.

Brent Cathey was told his property would be crossed in 2012. Cathey says the cars that'll run in front of his property will make his property worthless and unlivable.

The Montana Department of Transportation and Federal Highway Administration will host an open house Wednesday, April 9, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Bitterroot Elementary School Gymnasium to update the public about the Final Environmental Impact Statement and the next steps in the process.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
