BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) is scheduled to begin bridge work on the north and south ends of the Walter Hjelle Bridge located on North Dakota Highway 200A crossing the Missouri River west of Washburn, N.D., Monday, June 5.

The project includes minor structural repairs that were identified during Phase I of the project in 2022.

Work will occur during the daylight hours from June 5-11, 2023. Flagging will be in place to guide traffic while the Eastbound driving lane is closed from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day.
