New Transportation Head At The Helm

Posted: Updated:

A new transportation head steps into the driver's seat.  

Governor Jack Dalrymple appoints Grant Levi as the Director of the North Dakota Department of Transportation.  He has more than 30 years with the Department, and succeeds Francis Ziegler who retired last year after 42 years.  

When asked about the most challenging projects ahead, Levi identifies several in the oil patch:  "The four-laning project between Watford City and Williston, in addition to some of the by-passes that we're working on around the communities, because we're breaking new ground.  We're out, basically, purchasing right-of-way."

In addition, the DOT will be building a new bridge across the Missouri River South of Williston.  Levi says the goal is to have all these projects underway by the middle of next Summer.
The State's ability to tackle these transportation issues is aided by 372% growth in the DOT budget since 2007.
