Cities in North Dakota with growing populations are studying how to handle the challenges that come with busier intersections.
The issue might be of most concern in the western oil patch cities of Williston and Dickinson. Dickinson City Administrator Shawn Kessel tells The Forum (http://bit.ly/Vimx6E ) that one intersection there that had a daily traffic count of 15,500 vehicles in 2011 is expected to see 21,000 vehicles each day within a few years.
Williston City Traffic Technician Neil Bakken says nearly 42,000 vehicles pass through that city's busiest intersection each day. That is about 1,400 more than the busiest intersection in Fargo, the state's largest city.
