It won't close until after S.L.A.M. and Sweet Pea weekend, but this Monday there will (temporarily) be fewer parking spots in downtown Bozeman.

The convenient parking lot at the corner of S. Rouse and E. Babcock will be closed for approximately one week as crews improve the Bozeman Creek retention area.

The closure will begin August 10th.

Currently, the parking lot has little more than dirt patches, a few large rocks and some small trees as a natural retaining wall. Crews will be improving that situation AND making it safer for pedestrians.
