Assessment of ND County and Local Road Needs, 2019-2021

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. The following document is in draft form and available for comments, and based on the comments is subject to potential edits. Comments will be taken until August 30, 2020 and then a final draft will be posted. Infrastructure needs are 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 is predicted for individual spacing units, whereas agricultural production is estimated at the township level.
