BISMARCK, N.D. (KXNET) — The North Dakota Department of Transportation is now accepting applications for the Flexible Transportation Fund, or Flex Fund, program.

The Flex Fund is a new program within the department… designed to improve transportation infrastructure on and off the state highway system. This includes everything within townships, cities and counties, and tribal reservations. The fund can be used for projects that match federal funds, improve local corridors, help provide flexibility to augment traditional funding, and deliver projects in a timely manner.

“This is great opportunity to invest in North Dakota and expand goals from the state highway system into greater North Dakota,” said NDDOT Director Ron Henke. “We look forward to working with our local partners to enhance the transportation system.”

The application deadline is Dec. 31.
