MISSOULA, MT – A new secondary access road to Southgate Mall off Brooks Street is scheduled to open Tuesday morning. The new access road is located near South Garfield Street and can be used by southbound traffic on Brooks Street to enter the mall or by traffic exiting the mall that is headed southbound on Brooks.
The existing entrance to Southgate Mall off Brooks Street near Agnes will be permanently closed Tuesday. It will be removed to allow for the construction of the new intersection at Brooks Street and Mary Avenue. The traffic signals at the intersection of Brooks Street and the existing entrance to the mall will be shut off and all traffic to the mall will need to use alternate routes such as Paxson Street, the new secondary access road, or Fairview Avenue.
The right-hand lane southbound on Brooks Street between South Garfield and Agnes Avenue will remain closed. Drivers are asked to follow all lane restrictions, obey closures, keep out of the work zone and obey the speed limit.
