Dickinson High-Valley City football game delayed


Weather Forecast

Water sits in a pothole on a dirt road in the mobile home park directly east of 3rd Avenue Floral in Dickinson on Wednesday. Private roads, like the one pictured, and city streets alike have taken a pounding lately, partly due to the wet southwest North Dakota spring.

Rough riding: Dickinson's mobile home park roads hit hard by rains


More vehicles traveling Dickinson city streets seemingly every day is causing more wear and tear.

Add a historically wet month of May and a strained staff of city employees to the mix, and you have a recipe for a rough road ahead in the Queen City.

"We're out there trying to fix the roads," said Dickinson Public Works Director Gary Zuroff. "The rain has delayed us quite a bit on some of our projects."
