Feds send $6 million to Turtle Mountains to rebuild Jack Rabbit Road

WASHINGTON, D.C. The federal government is sending $6 million to the Turtle Mountains to rebuild a crumbling thoroughfare on the reservation.

The area received the grant to repair roughly five miles of Jack Rabbit Road, as part of the highly competitive TIGER program through the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The road, which lies just west of Belcourt, connects two population areas on the reservation and serves as a route to transport kids to school.

It’s unclear when work will begin on the road.
