Missoula County: Mullan-area transportation project would ease congestion, guide development

June 7, 2018View for printing

Nearly 16 years after a plan to complete a road network west of Reserve Street was first submitted to federal officials, Missoula County and its growing list of partners is ready to try again.

The county dusted off its plans last year and applied for a $19 million TIGER grant to complete the grid network between Mullan Road and West Broadway, a move that would open 400 acres of land for needed housing and light industrial development.

But the application wasn't approved and the grant has since changed names, though the county is ready to try again - the third time since 2012.
