Let's Improve Missoula's Reserve Street

Dear Missoula Development Services, In response to your September 28th email (regarding an additional City annexation), and your request for comment, please consider this important input from many citizens as co-signed below. We realize the City of Missoula is seeking to annex various sections around Missoula. We also are interested in seeing Missoula continue to grow in desirable ways. As such, please provide us with an overview of improvements planned for transportation infrastructure related to projected development.

We're specifically interested in seeing major improvements planned for Reserve St. to accommodate (the anticipated) additional traffic flows associated with regional growth. We're excited to see new projects like the one you've outlined below which help fuel Missoula's economic growth.

However, it's critical that our transportation infrastructure keeps pace with development. Planned projects spanning from the Scott St. bridge west to the airport and south to Linda Vista will likely be feeding additional traffic to Reserve St., Missoula's busiest (and most dangerous, to many) arterial. Many of us long-time Missoula City and County citizens have written and voiced to Montana Department of Transportation and others for the need of a long-range plan for the Reserve St. corridor.

We are concerned, as most of you are, about the disconcerting crash data (high crash rates and crash counts), along with excessive congestion, we see on Reserve St. year after year. Unfortunately, we still don't see a plan to address our overburdened Reserve St. and we're eager to assist in this effort. Thank you for considering this input from many of us as co-signed below, and we look forward to a response and a plan soon.

Respectfully yours,

Kevin Davis Admin. for Facebook Page "Let's Improve Missoula's Reserve St."
