BOZEMAN — For those tackling the construction zone that is currently Durston Road, some relief is in the near future.
Engineers for the City of Bozeman say two of the city’s largest road projects, which have closed off several roads like Cottonwood and a part of Ferguson for months now, are about to open up again.
Officials say Durston Road, between Ferguson and Fowler, should be open to traffic in about two weeks while work must wait until after winter.
As for Cottonwood Road, weather permitting, you could see a way through from Durston to Huffine by next week.
They add that the early, sticking snowfall and cold made it tough to continue paving the Ferguson-Durston roundabout and Cottonwood.
“Until the time, just be patient for another couple of weeks," says Bob Murray, Bozeman City project engineer. "I know it’s wearing on a lot of people but we are getting close and it’s going to start opening some things up and then through the winter, I want people...there’ll still be traffic control up, so be careful. Slow down through those areas.”
Engineers say both projects are still on track to be complete by next spring.
