Heading to Pearl Jam in Missoula? Here’s What You Need to Know
If you're heading to Missoula on Monday for the sold-out Pearl Jam concert, avoid the Van Buren Street exit on I-90.
In a recent press release, the Montana Department of Transportation said that while the eastbound exit ramp may be opened by that week, heavy construction will continue on Van Buren Street, and the nearby portion of the interstate will still be reduced to single-lane traffic.
Officials are expecting high traffic volume for the day of the Pearl Jam concert at Washington Grizzly Stadium.
Concert-goers are encouraged to take the Orange Street or East Missoula exits to get to the show.
Bicycle and pedestrian traffic will continue to be detoured to the east sidewalk of Van Buren Street, and flaggers will be out to assist pedestrians and cyclists navigating the traffic on the day of the concert.
