CONSTRUCTION UPDATE:  

 

Mary Jane Boulevard North

Mary Jane North project improvements are complete for this construction season.

 

The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) has a separate project on West Broadway, and crews are installing a signal at the intersection of Mary Jane Boulevard and West Broadway, weather permitting. The MDT project also includes improvements at the intersection of Flynn and West Broadway, requiring traffic control along West Broadway.  Please follow traffic sign information for detours and local access. Please drive the posted speed limit and watch for workers and equipment near the roadway. Questions? Please contact mredmond@mt.gov.

 

Mary Jane Boulevard South & Roundabout

Traffic is now entirely on the roundabout. The roundabout is fully open and Mary Jane Boulevard provides a connection to Broadway Street. As weather permits, crews will continue working outside the curb and gutter and installing initial lighting facilities. Due to streetlight lead times, streetlights will be installed in January of 2023. In the meantime, additional signs and delineators have been added to promote safety. 

 

George Elmer Drive & Roundabout

Crews paved the first lift for the eastbound traffic, and the second lift will be paved in the spring of 2023. Crews have also paved Marie Drive and completed the frontage road. The George Elmer Drive roundabout is now fully open in its winter configuration. George Elmer Drive between Pius Way and Abby Lane is also planned to open soon. 

 

England Boulevard

Shaping and grading the existing ground will continue next year, along with installation of curb, gutter, and paving. Due to cold weather and snow, the roadway improvements along England Boulevard between George Elmer Drive and Flynn Lane will be paused in the coming weeks and picked up again in 2023.

 

General Updates 

As mentioned above, Mullan Road's two roundabouts are almost fully completed!  The lighting, sidewalks, landscaping, and RRFB’s at both roundabouts still need to be installed, and some paving, curb pours, and median islands remain on the George Elmer roundabout.  While some improvements are still to come, the roundabouts are fully operational at this point.

 

Roundabouts move traffic efficiently. As a reminder, please slow down, yield, and look left when approaching the roundabout. Drivers within the roundabout have the right of way. Once clear, enter the roundabout. Prior to exiting, put your blinker on to indicate to other drivers where you intend to exit the roundabout. The idea is that movement occurs continually through the roundabout to keep traffic flowing. Please also look for and yield to pedestrians and bicyclists at crosswalks prior to entering and exiting the roundabouts.

Missoula County, the City of Missoula, and contractors have partnered with Kiewit Construction to complete the Mullan BUILD project, which has been substantially completed by the end of 2022. The work included utility infrastructure and roadway construction of Mary Jane Boulevard South, Mary Jane Boulevard North, England Boulevard, George Elmer Drive, and two roundabout intersections along Mullan Road (Mullan/George Elmer Drive and Mullan/Mary Jane Boulevard).

November 14, 2022

The week of November 14 through November 18, crews remain throughout the Mullan area. Thank you for your continued patience. 

 

REMINDERS:

 

PLEASE WATCH FOR SIGNS AND SLOW DOWN ON MULLAN ROAD. Highway patrol crew members are present. Fines double for traffic violations in the work zone. Thank you for being so understanding as we work to keep everyone safe!

Project team members will be present to answer questions about the construction schedule, roundabout designs on Mullan Road, multi-modal transportation elements, surrounding area projects and more. 

 

The goal of the Mullan BUILD project is to support residential and commercial development while also honoring and being sensitive to the surrounding environment. Select roadway and subsurface construction is in progress on Mary Jane Boulevard, Flynn Lane, George Elmer Drive, Mullan Road and England Boulevard. For a breakdown of the project schedule, please visit the webpage linked here.

 

Missoula County and the City of Missoula received a $13 million federal BUILD grant to construct a new road network in the Mullan area. This isn’t enough to fund the entire infrastructure system, which is estimated to be a $40 million project. As such, Mary Jane Boulevard South; Mary Jane Boulevard North; George Elmer Drive; and England Boulevard will be constructed (beginning in the spring of 2022 and finishing in 2023]. These elements have been prioritized as the locations with the most immediate benefit to the public. The project elements not delivered within this phase will be funded through additional impact fees, grants, and other local funding sources. Additional details are available on the BUILD website.

Questions on the roundabout design? Roundabouts are relatively new to Montanans and it’s understandable that neighbors may have questions or concerns about this design selection.


Roundabouts are proven safety measures as they significantly reduce crashes that result in serious injury or death. Roundabouts promote lower speeds, reduce conflict points for drivers and are designed to efficiently move traffic and function well for trucks and very large vehicles. For more information on how to drive a roundabout, follow this link.

Missoula County, in partnership with the City of Missoula, announces that construction on the Mullan BUILD project will begin next month. 

Missoula County officials received final approvals from the Federal Highway Administration this week.

Kiewit Corporation, the project’s contractor, will begin roadwork at the Mary Jane North and Broadway area in early April. Drivers will also notice utility and shoulder work beginning along Mullan Road. Complete road construction will take place this summer and early fall. In 2022, Missoulians can anticipate construction occurring on Mary Jane Boulevard, George Elmer South and England Boulevard, as these are the initial priorities of the project. Drivers can anticipate delays of up to 10 -15 minutes when traveling throughout the project area from April to October. Updates will be provided regularly on construction progress and anticipated delays. 

Missoula County received a $13 million federal BUILD grant to construct a new infrastructure network in the Mullan Road area. The federal grant, coupled with $8 million of local funding from the City and County, will support the first phase of Mullan BUILD project construction. The BUILD project will ultimately play an integral role in how Missoula will grow. A network of streets will be built to improve connectivity and provide access to current and future homes and businesses.

July 30, 2021

In case you missed the previous update, Missoula County, in partnership with the City of Missoula, announced a Mullan BUILD project schedule change. Initial construction was slated to begin later this summer and now has been pushed to the spring of 2022 due to unforeseen funding challenges. 

Limited availability of materials and labor have led to cost inflation in current bid prices. The Mullan BUILD team has continued communication with contractors, re-analyzed costs, tried to find flexibility in the schedule and made every effort to move forward with construction this year. The project plan prioritized elements of the project (Mary Jane Boulevard, George Elmer South, England Boulevard) and scenarios for future funding remain the same. The only change is the timeframe of initial construction shifting from 2021 to 2022. The team anticipates being able to complete the majority of the construction by the end of 2022 if available funding, and project budgets align. 

With this information in mind, the BUILD team is currently working to acquire additional funding, finalize Federal BUILD grant agreement steps, and continue conversations regarding right of way and development efforts in the area.

In the coming months, updates will be fairly quiet unless there is significant new information to announce. We will inform all stakeholders as progress is made. We anticipate more significant updates towards the beginning of fall and early winter.

In the meantime, please feel welcome to email takami@bigskypublicrelations.com with any questions or feedback.

Take care,

Becca MacLean on behalf of the BUILD Project Team

Happy June! We hope you are enjoying the beginning of summer. Please see below for important updates on the BUILD project. 

Missoula County, in partnership with the City of Missoula, announce a Mullan BUILD project schedule change. Initial construction was slated to begin later this summer and now has been pushed to the spring of 2022 due to unforeseen funding challenges. 

Limited availability of materials and labor have led to significant cost inflation in current bid prices. Current project costs exceeded available funding, forcing the team to re-evaluate the project schedule. The additional time will allow the Mullan BUILD team to seek additional local funding, further analyze material costs and move forward with the official grant agreement for the BUILD funding.


Throughout this process, the Mullan BUILD team has been in communication with contractors, re-analyzed costs, tried to find flexibility in the schedule and made every effort to move forward with construction this year. The project plan, prioritized elements of the project and scenarios for future funding remain the same. The only change in the timeframe is initial construction moving from 2021 to 2022. With better prices in the spring, the team anticipates being able to complete the majority of the construction by the end of 2022. 

Missoula County received a $13 million federal BUILD grant to construct a new infrastructure network in the Mullan Road area. The federal grant, coupled with local funding from the City and County, will fund the first phase of the Mullan BUILD project. Project leads estimate that $40 million of funding is required to complete the entire project. Because of the large funding gap, future project phases will be constructed as additional funding becomes available. Prioritized elements of work to go in the 2022 construction season include Mary Jane Boulevard, George Elmer South and England Boulevard. Other projects, such as utility extensions and minor intersection improvements related to development, will still proceed in 2021 separate of the BUILD project.   


Please email Becca at becca@bigskypublicrelations.com with any questions or feedback.


Additional project resources are available on the Mullan BUILD webpage linked here. This webpage will be updated to fully reflect the timeline update.

May 7, 2021

The Mullan BUILD team, including Missoula County, the City of Missoula and consultants, have completed the 100 percent design plans. These plans are linked on this webpage. Plans include intersection designs, landscaping, pavement marking, signing details and more. Now that design plans are complete, the BUILD team continues to finalize the acquisition of necessary right-of-way and seek additional funding for future phases of the entire project. 


Prioritized elements of the project, including portions of Mary Jane Boulevard South, Mary Jane Boulevard North, George Elmer South and England Boulevard, will go into construction scheduled to begin this summer. This initial construction phase will take place throughout 2021 and 2022. However, the timeframe is subject to change based on weather and contractor availability. Any schedule updates will be communicated moving forward as needed. 


As initial roadwork nears this summer, email updates will become more regular to ensure that residents are kept up to date. Please send neighbors or any interested parties our way if they would like to subscribe.


In addition to this, prior to and during construction season, opportunities will be available for the public to engage with the project team. The BUILD team encourages and values feedback and comments throughout the process seeing that much of the greater project is yet to be designed.

Mullan BUILD Project Update:

As a reminder, the Mullan BUILD team has completed the 90 percent design plans for the project.  These plans are available on the BUILD webpage at this link. These designs include specific intersection details, irrigation elements, drainage landscaping, lighting and electrical work, and much more. However, please note, these plans include designs for the prioritized elements of the project, inclusive of portions where construction is deferred to subsequent phases of the project once additional funding is acquired. 


After this 90% package is approved by the BUILD project team, which includes experts from the City of Missoula and Missoula County, DJ&A Engineering will be focused on a 100% design plan. Throughout all of these steps, the project team has been focused on prioritizing specific areas of work (Mary Jane Boulevard South, Mary Jane Boulevard North, George Elmer South, England Boulevard) to fit within current project funding confines provided by the BUILD grant. In addition to design plans, the team will be focused on finalizing BUILD grant agreements, acquiring needed right-of-way and seeking additional funding for future phases of the larger project. 


Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin late-spring 2021. This initial construction phase will take place over 2021 and 2022. The timeframe is subject to change.


To provide background, the Mullan BUILD team, inclusive of DJ&A Engineering, City of Missoula and Missoula County representatives, and more, initially applied for BUILD grant funding and received $13 million in total. This required a prioritization of specific project elements in order to move forward with the limited funding. Project element prioritizations listed above will be completed in this initial phase of work (2021, 2022), dates subject to change. As additional funding is acquired via impact fees or grant funding, the entire project throughout the Mullan area can be delivered. 


Seeking Additional Funding:

As described above, impact fees are being considered as a potential avenue for funding the reminder of the BUILD project. Throughout February and early March, the City of Missoula is presenting plans to City Council via a Public Hearing scheduled for February 22. Additional discussion dates and information is posted on the City website linked here as well as on our BUILD webpage linked here. Details to come as the month progresses.


Open House: 

All are invited to a virtual open house on Tuesday, April 6 at 11:30 a.m. Register for this event at this link.


We hope you can join us for a presentation and question-and-answer session with the project team prior to construction!

Mullan BUILD Project Update:

The Mullan BUILD team has completed the 90 percent design plans for the project. They have more accurately determined costs and additional factors when narrowing project locations advancing to construction this year with the available funding. Additionally, the BUILD team is continuing to work towards the completion of all the right-of-way necessary for project elements that may not be constructed with the first round of funding.


As many understand, this project is being completed with limited funding through the BUILD grant. This includes work on Mary Jane Boulevard South, Mary Jane Boulevard North, George Elmer Drive South, and England Boulevard. This work will take place tentatively in 2021 and 2022 as the initial phase of the project.


The team’s goal is to complete all project elements and identified improvements in addition to the prioritizations listed above including Grant Creek restoration, Tipperary Way Trail, etc. The plan is to complete the entire project scope once additional funding and right of way is acquired.  More updates to come.


Please note, the tentative schedule for select road and subsurface construction will begin late-spring 2021. Initial construction will take place over both 2021 and 2022 and is anticipated to be substantially completed by November 2022. The most significant construction will occur in 2022. To reiterate, this timeframe is for the first phase of work within the current funding confines. However, the schedule and time frame are subject to change. 


Open House: 

The media and public are invited to a virtual open house in early April. Registration and details for this event will be located at this link. More information to come.


This open house will be structured similarly to past public meetings. There will be a brief presentation covering project design plans, parking, lighting, the construction schedule and general elements to be aware of. Then, the project team will conclude with a question-and-answer session to make sure that all attendee questions and concerns are addressed prior to 2021 construction beginning.
