State Maintained Routes

Overview
For more than 30 years, the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has contracted with the City of Billings for street maintenance on state routes. However, beginning in July, 2011 the MDT has opted to maintain their own routes. Maintenance includes street patching, sweeping, storm sewer repair, snow plowing, snow removal, ice control, street striping, vegetation control, signal maintenance, and sign replacement.

The following are the roads previously maintained by the City which are now maintained by the MDT:
  • Laurel Road from Parkway Lane to the Sixth Street West overpass
  • Montana Avenue from the 6th Street West overpass to Division Street
  • Division Street from Montana Avenue to First Avenue North
  • First Avenue North from Main Street to Division Street
  • All of the streets constructed in conjunction with the Sixth Street West overpass
  • First Avenue South – Minnesota Avenue connection from Sixth Street West overpass through the North 13th Street overpass to First Avenue North
