Truck Reliever Route Will Soon Ease Traffic

Posted: Updated:

Governor Dalrymple, state and local officials gathered today at the starting point of what will soon be the Williston Truck Reliever Route.

The new four-lane road will cost an estimated $162 million, and will be built over the next two construction seasons.

It will provide truck drivers with another route to use and help alleviate heavy traffic in the city.

"To take all this traffic that's coming up highway 85, which very soon by the way will be four lane. We'll see a lot of that this summer by the way. We will be able to continue right straight north here and on around to the north side of Williston," says Gov. Jack Dalrymple.  

"We really appreciate the money that the state has sent back to this region for roads. We know we sometimes complain about not having enough money for other projects, but when it comes to roads and transportation issues. They've done a marvelous job," says Williston Mayor Ward Koeser. 

Construction of the first phase will begin in spring and work on phase two will be completed in 2015.
