By: NDDOT,

Construction will begin on Thursday, May 5, on ND Highway 200 north of Hillsboro. The project consists of reconstruction of ND Highway 200 from Hillsboro north to the junction where ND Highway 200 turns west towards Mayville. During construction:

· ND Highway 200 will be closed from the American Crystal Sugar Plant north of Hillsboro to Taft. A detour is in place along I-29. Local traffic will be able to access the American Crystal Sugar Plant from the south and the Rahr Malt facility in Taft from the north. The road closure is expected to last approximately one month.

· Widening of the roadway will take place between Taft and the junction where ND Highway 200 turns to Mayville. Local traffic will be allowed but some delays may occur.

The entire project is expected to be complete by mid-August.

Rear end crashes are the most common in work zones. Motorists are encouraged to slow down, allow extra distance between their vehicles and the vehicles in front of them, use caution, obey flaggers and posted signs.
