This research provides some demographic and geographic information, but does not address highway capacity needs, right of way needs, restricted speed policy, processes for determining future access, evaluation of current access right of way needs for future frontage roads, and bypass opportunities in and around communities. The aforementioned and issues dealing with community support, data collection, traffic operational analysis, safety analysis, geometric designs, right of way needs, identification of environmental conditions, coordination with related projects and jurisdictions, preliminary cost estimates, economic analysis, and federal planning process compliance would need to be addressed in a feasibility or corridor analysis study that would be conducted prior to investment by the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT). This document is the precursor to a feasibility study, and Requests for Proposals (RFPs) are attached in Appendix B.
