will begin on Friday, August 24 on ND Highway 23 from Watford City to the
Reservation Boundary, approximately 10 miles west of New Town. The project
consists of a chip sealing, which is a thin film of
heated asphalt liquid that is sprayed on the road surface followed by placement
of small aggregates (chips). The chips are gradually compacted by traffic
traveling over the roadway for maximum adherence to the asphalt.
Speeds will be reduced
Pilot car and flaggers will be present
Motorists may experience delays
project is expected to be completed in September.
The NDDOT would like to remind motorists to slow down and
use caution throughout the work zone. For more information about construction
projects and road conditions throughout North Dakota, call 511 from any type of
