Group Discussing Ferry for Sakakawea

Posted: Updated:


A different kind of transportation is proposed in Western North Dakota--one that could save lives.

There are talks about building a ferry across Lake Sakakawea.
This is in response to the overcrowded roads and highways of the oil patch.
The Vision West ND group met with engineers about construction of a ferry that would connect Twin Buttes to Elbow Woods Bay.
Instead of traveling up to 100 miles to get around the lake, which could take hours, drivers could float across the lake in about 30 minutes.
Mark Resner of Vision West says this project would help unite Ft. Berthold Indian Reservation with the villages of Van Hook and Sanish.
It could also bring recreational traffic during the summer.
Members of the group voted to fund a study that would explore the effects of this project.
The proposed ferry would carry about 30 cars.
