US Hwy. 85, Long X Bridge, could Receive Funding For Improvements


Damage and repair work to the dated Long X Bridge have caused lengthy delays and detours for travelers along US Highway 85 in western North Dakota.

Another major piece of the prime two-lane highway into the Bakken shale play would be widened and the old Long X Bridge possibly replaced following a study going on now.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation is looking into improving 67 miles of U.S. Highway 85 from Watford City to Interstate 94 at Belfield. The highway has already undergone a dramatic transformation with a $300 million infusion of oil money to build it out to four lanes between Watford City and Williston.
