Mullan BUILD Overview


Project Background

In July of 2019, Missoula County and the City of Missoula partnered to apply for a discretionary grant through the US Department of Transportation known as Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD). 

The project focused on developing roads and infrastructure to support residential and commercial development in the area to the west of Reserve Street between Mullan Road and West Broadway. The project, as originally proposed, consisted of eight distinct project elements were to be developed with grant funding and a local match from the City/County.

More information about each of these original project elements can be found here. Our team will be reevaluating elements in alignment with our soon-to-be-developed criteria.

Current Status

The Mullan Road BUILD team is currently preparing preliminary design plans for the entire BUILD project. One of the first objectives, and strong drivers of this project, is evaluating priorities to determine which segments to construct first. We intend to make the project as equitable as possible for all landowners and share the benefits of the BUILD grant over the entire Mullan and Broadway area. As these parameters are considered, our goal is to share the process clearly and transparently with the public and with our partners. We aren’t quite there yet, but more information will be coming soon.


Project Team

The Mullan BUILD project is highly collaborative, with representatives from the City, County, MPO and other governmental jurisdictions. In addition to local government offices, DJ&A is the primary lead on plan development. Among other subconsultants, Big Sky Public Relations is the primary point of contact for the public and partners throughout the course of this multi-year project.
