Welcome to the Bozeman Street Report! This is one place to get the scoop on how the City of Bozeman is working hard to keep you driving, biking, and strolling safely on our city streets and sidewalks year round. Our goal is to make construction season as painless and transparent as possible! While we do have to cram a lot into a few short, warm-weather months, we’ll do our very best to give residents and visitors to Bozeman advanced notice of closures, detours, and delays during the busy spring and summer season…to keep you cruising easily on your daily commute.
How do you find out which streets, sidewalks and trails are impacted, and when? Follow us on Twitter and Facebook at: BZNStreetReport for daily closure updates. Also, listen for our radio spots each week during your morning commute on Townsquare Radio stations. For a comprehensive list of projects, check out the map on this webpage for a complete overview of what-is-happening-and-where around town.
Here’s the scoop on two of our major projects this summer:
Baxter Lane will see a series of improvements over the summer from N. 7th to N. 19th, and also from Ferguson to Harper Puckett. Please watch for closures and detours as the construction moves along this route.
An upgrade on the roadway and curbs from Cleveland to Babcock necessitates a road closure. This Street Improvement District Project is the result of cooperation between property owners and the City of Bozeman sharing expenses. Please use alternate routes this summer.
Just a reminder that North Rouse is a state roadway and construction projects along this route are part of the Montana Department of Transportation. For more information please contact MDT directly.

A few tips to keep you traveling smoothly this summer:
- Give construction crews a wide berth!
- Watch for bike lanes and designated bike routes (marked with bike “sharrows” on the pavement) and respect bike commuters.
- Maintain any sidewalks in disrepair in front of your home.
- Park off street when possible to make room for street sweepers.
- Be mindful of yard debris or other waste heading into stormwater intakes. Do your part to protect our urban waterways.
- Give each other – and construction crews – a wave! Summer is short in Montana; enjoy every moment while crews upgrade everyone’s travel experience.
