The North Dakota Department of Transportation will install traffic signals at three Williston intersections, according to a press release.

Construction of a signal at the intersection of U.S. 2 and 1804 West is set to finish by the beginning of December while two signals at the intersections of U.S. 2 and County Roads 1 and 6 will provide for access at the temporary northwest bypass by mid-October.

Work on the underground portion of the temporary bypass signals is ongoing now.

 Hay bales must be moved

The deadline to remove hay bales from rights of way in North Dakota for snow removal and safety is approaching, according to a North Dakota Department of Transportation press release.

The hay bales must be removed by Thursday, Nov. 1, and any remaining at that point will be removed by the district engineer, the release said.

The release also cited North Dakota Century Code, which only allows for hay in the right-of-way on the outer ledge.

“Large bales must not be placed on in-slopes or within 60 feet from the outside edge of the driving lane,” according to the press release.

Load restriction removed

A load restriction was removed on N.D. 5 starting Tuesday morning, according to a North Dakota Department of Transportation press release.

The restriction was removed on the portion of roadway between the Montana border and the junction of N.D. 40, the release said. Other restrictions set in place previously remain in effect.
