The Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Planning Organization is completing a US Highway 83 Alternative Study in cooperation with the City of Bismarck, Burleigh County, and the NDDOT. The study area boundaries are: US Highway 83 to the west, I-94 to the south, ND Highway 36 to the north, and ND Highway 14 to the east.

The purpose of the study is to:

  • Identify, evaluate, and develop viable highway alternatives along US Highway 83 north of Bismarck to best serve existing and future stakeholders within the region.
  • Analyze potential new routes for regional traffic and identify operational improvements for the State Street corridor.
  • Analyze anticipated outcomes of the US Highway 83 realignment on Bismarck and Burleigh County.
  • Evaluate other infrastructure improvements near the State Street corridor to determine if they could help alleviate congestion.

The Study is being conducted from October 2017 to May 2019.
