Group Proposes Lake Sakakawea Car Ferry

Posted: Updated:
A ferry that carries cars across Lake Sakakawea could be in the works.

Vision West N.D. is leading a proposed project to put a ferry on the lake north of Twin Buttes where Highway eight ends. The objective is to ease traffic patterns on Highway 22 north of Killdeer.

"It gives the passenger traffic an alternative route to Highway 22. If you're going from Dickinson to Parshall or New Town or Stanley, rather than go up Highway 22 with all the heavy truck traffic, you can move over and go up across the ferry," says Mark Resner the project leader for the ferry.

The group is working with a consulting and engineering firm to put together a preliminary study to look at cost and feasibility.

It should be ready in a few weeks.
