Continued growth in north Bismarck created an opportunity for a new gas station to come in.
And the Lewis and Clark Riverboat is back giving tours.
Jon Schaeffer is around town this week.
Just off state street by the Ruby Tuesdays, work has begun on the a new Holiday gas station. You will find 5 different types of gasoline from diesel to unleaded to E-85 at the pumps. The Holiday is the second one built in Bismarck. The other is on the Bismarck Expressway. The new gas station will also include a car wash. Shingobee builders are working on the site along with Zahl Petroleum. They have gas tanks in the ground and expect to be done with the new Holiday in September.
The Lewis and Clark Riverboat was slated to start its tours today. The hour and a half long roundtrip up the Missouri River has been absent from use for the last year due to flooding. Captain Matt Schanandore says he is very excited to get the Riverboat back and giving tours. The 40 foot riverboat can also be used for weddings. It costs 17 dollars to hop on board for a tour.
