NDDOT and NDHP reduce speed limit on US 83 between Ruthville and Minot Air Force Base

The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) in working with the ND Highway Patrol have decided to reduce the speed limit on US Highway 83 from 70 mph to 55 mph from the south edge of Ruthville to the Minot Air Force Base, approximately two miles from mile marker 209.8 to 211.8.  The reduced speed limit will take effect on Tuesday, April 10. The speed limit reduction is being implemented to enhance safety in the area.


The NDDOT will continue to evaluate and review the area for other potential safety enhancements as well as work with community members on additional efforts which include traffic safety education. Safety on our roadways is very important to us and is a combined effort of engineering, enforcement, education, and emergency services.  The state’s new traffic safety initiative called “Vision Zero” has a primary goal to continually work toward zero motor vehicle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
