An Assessment of County and Local Road Infrastructure Needs in North Dakota

In Senate Bill 2325, the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) was directed by the North Dakota legislature to analyze “the transportation infrastructure needs of all county and township roads in the state.” This effort includes an update of information presented to the legislature during the 2011 session. In 2010, under the direction of the Governor, UGPTI estimated the additional county and local road investment needs in western North Dakota as a result of rapid growth in oil production. The oil study was quickly followed by an analysis of the investments needed to facilitate agricultural logistics. The results of both studies were presented to the legislature in January of 2011. This study extends and updates the 2011 studies. It combines the effects of agricultural- and oil-related traffic and other economic activities on county and local roads, using the most current production forecasts and traffic and roadway condition data.
