The Top 5 Most Frustrating Roads In Bozeman According To Locals.
Traveling around Bozeman can be a bit frustrating.
In the winter people complain about the snow and ice, in the summer it's the tourists and road construction. Of course, as people continue to move to the area, the traffic and the frustration continue to grow and for some, it's just become too much.
So which roads are the most frustrating in the Bozeman area? We decided to ask locals their opinions on the subject, and they didn't hesitate to tell us what they thought.
There were multiple roads that were mentioned as being frustrated, but we decided to go with the Top 5 most mentioned.
Main Street in downtown Bozeman can be frustrating, especially during tourist season. From the lack of parking spaces to folks pulling campers or driving RVs, many locals avoid the area if possible. Throw in all the pedestrians crossing the streets and drivers not sure which lane they should be in, it can be a bit of a headache.
7th Street can get pretty busy, especially around quitting time. It's not unusual for traffic to be backed up and for drivers to have to wait through a light cycle or two before they can move with the traffic. Throw in the fact that construction is taking place around the Interstate exit, and it can be a bit of a mess.
19th Street can be a straight-up nightmare, especially between 4 pm to 6 pm on weekdays. Much like 7th Street, be prepared to wait...and wait some more when 19th is backed up. Throw in the fact that there are multiple shopping centers and restaurants with traffic coming in and out, and it's no surprise that so many people say it's the most one of the most frustrating roads in Bozeman.
Baxter And 7th Street
It looks like 7th Street has made the list twice, but if you are coming off of Baxter onto 7th, or if you're turning onto Baxter from 7th, depending on the traffic flow, be prepared to get frustrated. With no light, you kind of just have to wait for a space to open up so you can make your move. In traffic, that move can take a long time.
Lots of folks mentioned "any road around the MSU campus" as the most frustrating, but several people mentioned Kagy Boulevard by name. The street can get rather busy, especially during football games when a large portion of the street is closed, as well as events happening at Brick Breeden.
As mentioned, there were several others that made the list. Jackrabbit, Huffine, and Griffin to name a few. Which road do you think is the most frustrating in the Bozeman area? Let us know by sending us a message on our radio station app.
