Construction Along Highway 22

Posted:

Highway 22 north of Dickinson is another project construction crews are busy with.

Last summer 22 was made into a four lane highway from Dickinson up to the county line.

This summer crews are back at it again, making highway 22 a safer and smoother ride for drivers.

<<Highway 22 is no stranger to drivers in the oil patch, many drive the stretch of road everyday.

"A lot of traffic, it's heavily traveled, a lot of trucks," Randy Bohannan from Montana said.

This summer construction crews are widening 22 north of Dickinson.

Crews are adding passing and turning lanes to make traffic flow more smoothly.

But the orange cones are frustrating some drivers.

"It's just really slow, and they've got cones in the middle of the road, some are knocked over into the middle of the lane," Thomas Byram said.

"It does slow me down, I go up to Mandare and Newtown and it takes me about an extra 30 minutes.

Traffic might be slow this summer, but drivers say adding passing lanes along the highway will allow them to speed up.

"It will be nice because it's only two lanes, and if you get behind someone there's a lot of hills so it's hard to pass," Byram said.

"Those passing lanes are really nice, I'm surprised 22 doesn't have any, so it will be nice to get some in," Bohannan said.>>

Drivers we spoke with say traffic is slowed down to 25 miles per hour in some areas along 22, making it longer for them to get to their destinations.
