State-funded $15M underpass/overpass opened in Williston

WILLISTON, N.D. — Officials have completed a project intended to separate local and regional traffic on a section of U.S. Highway 2 in the bustling oil patch hub of Williston.

The $15 million project paid for with state money provides an overpass for regional traffic and an underpass for local traffic. It was opened to vehicles on Thursday.

The 18th Street Underpass project also included sidewalks, landscaping and lighting to aid pedestrians.

State Transportation Director Grant Levi says the stretch of U.S. 2 sees nearly 30,000 vehicles each day.

  1. Only took two years to build. What a joke.

  2. Waste of money. I’m guessing lots of kick backs for that project

  3. Underpass connecting two residential neighborhoods and an overpass which saves drivers from exactly zero stoplights. You can’t make this stuff up.
