Patching and repairing streets and highways in the future won’t be cheap according to an analysis by the Upper Great Plains Traffic Institute.   The group compiled the report to help identify North Dakota’s needs 20 years down the road.    The study looked at both rural and urban areas.  Grand Forks would need 31-point-six million dollars in each of the next 20-years to cover all maintenance...highway improvements… and enhanced needs.

Assistant City Engineer Mark Walker says the analysis looked strictly at needed projects and repairs.  The report was shared with members of the Grand Forks Safety / Service Committee this week.
