North Dakota Department of Transportation – Sorlie Bridge

North Dakota Department of Transportation’s $4.6 million project rehabilitated an aging bridge across the Red River to increase safety and maintain connectivity between the cities of Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN. Through meticulous analysis, inter-agency collaboration and community outreach, officials with the North Dakota and Minnesota DOTs saved tax payers $24 million by rehabilitating this critical bridge and adding several safety and aesthetics features, such as paint and LED lighting to preserve its rich history. During the construction phase, crews kept the bridge open to traffic to maintain the flow of 14,000 vehicles daily and reduce impacts to the traveling public.
