Safety upgrades planned at dangerous Minot-area intersection

August 22, 2018

RUTHVILLE, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota’s Transportation Department is installing safety enhancements at an intersection that some consider dangerous between Minot and Minot Air Force Base.

The agency sought public input after a fatal crash in February at the U.S. Highway 83 intersection with a county road at Ruthville.

Officials in April reduced the speed limit from 70 mph to 55 mph in a 2-mile stretch of the highway in the area of the intersection. The department says that over the next few weeks, improvements will be made to lighting and signage there.
