New repair project planned for ND Highway 22

BISMARCK(AP) -- North Dakota's Transportation Department plans to award a contract next week for a new repair project on state Highway 22 north of Killdeer.

The heavily traveled road in western North Dakota's oil patch was shut down in mid-May by landslides. It was to reopen in mid-July after the completion of temporary bypasses but another landslide halted that plan.

Officials say the new repair project includes relocating and realigning a section of the roadway. It's expected to be opened in late fall or early winter, though it will have a gravel surface through the winter until a permanent roadway can be constructed starting in the spring
