Project Description

The New Town Truck Reliever Route is a two-lane roadway that will re-route truck traffic on ND Highway 23 around the northeast of New Town. The 3.2 mile project will improve traffic flow through New Town and surrounding area as well as help meet the forecasted traffic demand.  The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2014.

In addition to the New Town Truck Reliever Route project, crews will also be working on improvements to 1804 this summer. Paving, widening and intersection work is underway from 1804 traveling south to the junction of ND 23. This project includes reconstruction of the intersection, paving, new intersection signals and an additional center turn lane on 1804. Improvements to Main Street in New Town are planned for the construction season in 2015.

Current Project Status

  • Traffic has recently been shifted onto 87th Street as needed to continue work in the area
  • Work at the intersection of 1804 and ND 23 continues adjacent to the eastbound and westbound lanes
  • Speeds are reduced to 35mph or less in the area
  • Paving of the truck reliever route is expected to begin by the end of September
