Missoula’s Reserve Street targeted for future study – Reserve Street Public Working Group (Zoom meetings every Tuesday at 9) & Missoula City and County Transportation Committee Meeting Times

Reserve Street-Head-On-Crash

Transportation planners have their eyes on Reserve Street, but changes aren’t expected anytime soon.

“The Montana Department of Transportation, the city of Missoula and the Metropolitan Planning Organization recognize there is a need for improvements on Reserve, and have started discussing a potential planning study,” MDT District Administrator Bob Vosen said Tuesday. “This would be to help identify small spot improvements to start with.”

Concerned citizens like Kevin Davis with the Reserve Street Public Working Group (Zoom meetings every Tuesday at 9) have been advocating for such a study for years. Davis would also like to see improvements such as designated crosswalks and protected bike lanes on the popular roadway maintained by MDT.

Kevin Davis writes:

Our Reserve St. Public Working Group had another insightful Zoom meeting today, this time with Shane Stack and Jeremy Keene.  Aaron Wilson was absent and we missed his participation as a representative of our Metropolitan Planning Organization.  No other officials participated today.

Today we revisited the Jan. 2020 ‘Community Vision for Reserve St.’ where we discussed how very little progress (in terms of planning and execution) has been realized so far for the Reserve St. corridor, along with some of the reasons why.  We’ll try to meet again on the topic in June if you and other involved officials would like to participate.  Here is the Zoom info to access today’s Feb. 28th meeting and I hope the recording is useful:


If you are one of the people that think that area of Missoula can be improved, there is, at the very least, a forum where ideas and dialogue can be exchanged.

This new program may be Missoula’s best bet to get funding for Reserve St. The fiscal year 2023 Notice of Funding Opportunity is expected to open in April for the second round of SS4A grants.  Let us know if Missoula plans on submimtting an application so we can write a letter of support.
