The City of Billings has been working on widening Grand Avenue from 8th Street West to 12th Street West. The project includes replacement of:
Widening to five lanes
Installation of seven-foot wide sidewalk on both sides of the street
Reconstruction of the street
The City of Billings had anticipated that construction of Grand Avenue would start Spring of 2004. However, due to complications involved in the right of way acquisitions and budget shortfalls, the Grand Avenue Project was delayed.
Throughout the year of 2006, the City of Billings has continued to work with the affected property owners regarding right of way acquisitions.
