Virtual public input meeting available July 19 on proposed improvements to Interstate 29 near Kelso

BISMARCK, N.D. – A virtual public input meeting will be available Monday, July 19 on the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) website at, click Public Meetings under Quick Links. A pre-recorded presentation and other materials will be available. This is not a live event.

The purpose of the meeting is to receive public input and comments on proposed improvement to Interstate 29 from north of Kelso (Exit 100) to the junction of North Dakota Highway 200 in Traill County.

The intent of the project is to improve integrity and extend life of the existing pavement for the northbound and southbound I-29 lanes and existing on/off ramps and crossroads. The addition of a pedestrian crossing facility at the Hillsboro Interchange to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists will also be explored.
