Trucks Near Williston


FILE - In this March 23, 2012 file photo, trucks drive south on Highway 85 near Williston, N.D., in the state's oil patch region. The number of permits issued for oversize or overweight trucks that use county roads and bridges in North Dakota's oil patch has more than doubled since 2009 and has increased more than 500 percent in the past five years, records show. The 18 counties in North Dakota's oil patch are expected to fetch more than $4 million in permit fees this fiscal year. (AP Photo/Elijah Nouvelage, File)
