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.

    Susanne Rodell faced a difficult situation. Hail storm damage to her roof led to an insurance claim being filed. Rodell picked a local contractor to fix her roof, but mother nature did not cooperate. While the roofing company was in the middle of fixing her roof, a weekend of rain caused water damage to dry wall and ceilings within the house.
