BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) selected 66 local projects in the amount $84 million to fund through its Flexible Transportation Fund (Flex Fund) program. A complete list of projects can be found at www.dot.nd.gov/flexfund.

The program provides $222.5 million to the NDDOT for improvements to transportation infrastructure on and off the state highway system, including within townships, cities, counties, and tribal reservations. 

“Investing in our infrastructure is critically important to provide North Dakota citizens with a safe and reliable transportation system,” said Gov. Doug Burgum. “The Flex Fund will allow the state more flexibility to support local, county, and tribal highway projects.” 

The Flex Fund was recommended in the governor's executive budget proposal and established by the 68th Legislative Assembly to complement the Federal Aid Highway Program and further support an interconnected transportation system.

“There was a very high interest level among local partners in the initial Flex Fund rollout which highlights the need for transportation funding across the state,” said NDDOT Director Ron Henke. “This program shows the commitment of the state legislature, governor and NDDOT to provide the needed funding to safely move people and goods.”

The NDDOT received 264 applications for the program totaling more than $674 million in project costs.
