Assessment of ND County and Local Road Needs

2021-2023 Legislative Study

This effort responds to the North Dakota Legislature's request for a study of the transportation infrastructure of all county, township, and tribal roads and bridges in the state. UGPTI is currently developing and analyzing traffic, bridge, pavement and unpaved road data in order to forecast investment needs for the next 20 years. Infrastructure needs will be estimated using the most current crop and oil production forecasts, traffic estimates, and roadway condition data. Agricultural and oil related traffic is modeled in detail at sub-county level. Oil related traffic will be predicted for individual spacing units, whereas agricultural production is estimated at the township level.
