Construction Update

Posted: Updated:

The construction on 11th street - while it may slow down your morning commute - is a quick job that is making exceptional progress and will make travel easier in the long run.  Assistant district engineer Joel Wilt explained what the road work is for.

 "To get the intersection to work correctly with the volume of traffic we have, we have to move those two road ways closer together, and so that's what we're doing" said Wilt.  

 Wilt explained that the project is moving quickly and according to schedule.

 "Construction on 11th street has been a very quick contract, there wasn't a lot of time to do it but they've been progressing nicely, they are scheduled to be finished on time, which is in the middle of October, and it seems to be going well" stated Wilt.

 Wilt is appreciative with how tolerate the people of Williston have been in regards to all of the road construction.

 "Generally we've got so much construction going on the highways around Williston- every highway leading into Williston is under construction, so I think that the people have been very tolerant.11th street hasn't been any different, they've been very tolerant of it and actually traffic has been moving through the construction really well" added Wilt.

 Wilt is hopeful that within a month the 11th street construction will be completed and traffic will be moving smoothly.
