The Sheyenne River National Scenic Byway has used Transportation Enhancement funds for interpretive sites along the byway. This site is at Baldhill Dam north of Valley City and is a cooperative project with the US Army Corps of Engineers.
TE funds can be used for visitor centers that are part of a scenic or historic highway program.
This visitors center also acts as a transportation museum. It houses the restored 1880’s railroad executive car, the Rosebud, pictured to the right.
This downtown park in Ellendale was funded in part with TE funds. It is located along ND 1.
Living Snow Fence
Trees and shrubs can be used to control snow deposition on roadways, urban streets and rural roads. This project is located in Fargo along North University Drive. It has successfully provided protection for the roadways within this residential subdivision.
Shared Use Path Projects
This shared use path project in Morton County is along ND 1806 north of Mandan. It serves a growing rural population just north of the city.
Shared use paths are transportation routes and people desire to use them year round. Keeping them free of snow, such as Jamestown does with the James Reservoir shared use path, provides users great winter time bicycle/pedestrian transportation.
Turtle Mountains - Lake Metigoshe
This shared use path through the forest around Lake Metigoshe was completed in 2007. Completion of this eight mile trail has been a goal of Bottineau County since the beginning of the TE program.
Park River to Homme Dam
The city of Park River and Walsh County constructed a shared use path along the north side of ND 15. This park runs from the city to Homme Dam. It is an example of good design practices for a roadway crossing.
