The project consisted of constructing 11 miles of a brand new four lane highway bypassing the northwest side of Williston ND. Between the two phases 2.8 million CY of earthwork occurred along with 400,000 tons of base and 500,000 SY of concrete placed. The unique aspect to this projected was constructing and new roadway through existing farmland. Building from scratch created unknown challenges such as bridging areas previously ponded with water, the settlement of 50+ feet of brand-new fill and cultural monitoring for Native American artifacts. With all the unique challenges and enormous size of the project compared to previous construction in the area, the combined final cost was still $3.5 million under budget.
