Major road upgrades:
expensive and can be time consuming. Much of the major improvements to
our rural roads rely on significant financial assistance from the
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This help
is greatly appreciated.
By finishing the work on Killdeer from Road 12 to Road 19, we
have been able to finish many
improvements we wouldn't otherwise have been able to afford.
Please keep in mind that we have only limited set of trucks & graders
and only our normal compliment of equipment operators. We still try to keep up
with regular maintenance & contend with special situations like
bridge/culvert damage, unique weather issues and equipment failures...
all with the same level of manpower.
In short, the challenges & limitations are many. But, rest assured,
the Public Works department is constantly working to improve driving
conditions every day. Many of our roads have been neglected for years,
and putting them back into shape is not an overnight undertaking.
Perhaps our greatest asset in all this work is the patience of our
citizens. We ask for your continued patience & support, and together
we will all see improvement.
