Wildlife crossing planned for Hwy. 85 expansion in Oil Patch

Email

WILLISTON — A critter crossing large enough to accommodate moose will go under an expanded U.S. Highway 85 near Williston, helping wildlife travel through habitat that’s now divided by heavy oilfield traffic.

Future wildlife crossings, including overpasses for bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope, are being studied for other critical habitat areas in North Dakota’s Oil Patch.
