BISMARCK, N.D. – Beginning on June 22, the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) will be replacing one bridge deck and doing overlay on two bridges at three locations on Interstate 29. The bridge deck replacements are located on the crossroad structure at the Great Bend Interchange #15, south bound BNSF bridge four miles south of the Colfax Interchange, and the north bound Wild Rice River Bridge seven miles south of Fargo.
