Part of US 85 in western ND to close at night for bridge repairs

WATFORD CITY, N.D. — State transportation officials are closing U.S. Highway 85 about 14 miles south of Watford City during nighttime hours as repairs continue to the Long X Bridge.

The closure between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. takes effect Monday. During daytime hours, one lane of the highway will be open to traffic.

The highway is a major north-south route in the western North Dakota oil patch. The bridge was damaged March 18 when it was struck by a truck load that was too high.
