The Montana Department of Transportation is set to host two open houses in March to educate the public on its proposed Lola Shephard Intersection Improvements project.

A virtual webinar will be held on March 14 from noon to 1 p.m. via Zoom. In addition, an in-person meeting will be held on March 22 from 3:30-6 p.m. at the Hampton Inn, 725 Carter Drive, according to an MDT news release.

Both events will cover the same information, and project team members will be available to present information and answer questions regarding project design.

The proposed work includes the addition of a traffic signal and roundabout; improved pedestrian and cyclist crossings; and traffic flow enhancements.

“The purpose of the project is to address operational issues for all users within the project area and enhance roadway safety features,” the news release states.
