Crosby to make improvements before centennial celebration

CROSBY, N.D. — Officials in the northwestern North Dakota city of Crosby are planning millions of dollars’ worth of improvements next year as they gear up for the city’s centennial celebration in 2017.

KXMC-TV reports that as many as 65 city blocks will get new curb, gutter and sidewalks, and about 21 blocks including Main Street will get repairs to underground infrastructure as well.

Construction will be funded mainly through $8.3 million the city of 1,100 people received through a so-called surge funding bill that lawmakers approved earlier this year. The goal was to help communities that have grown quickly due to oil development.

Crosby also is expanding a daycare and adding a splash pad to a new community center that hosts hockey and curling.
