20th Ave Southwest Frontage Road Reconstruction (project to start the week of June 6th, 2024 - see maps below! The 20th Ave SW Frontage Road is being reconstructed, from 16th St SW all the way to 4th St SW. Over a handful of work phases, the road's asphalt surface will be milled off. After the top surface is removed, cement powder and water is mixed into the ground under the road. This process is called cement stabilization, and will provide a much stronger and more durable base for the road. After cement stabilization is finished, the road will be paved.

Seat belts save lives.

They are the single most effective safety device to prevent death and injury in a motor vehicle crash. Seat belts restrain occupants in the vehicle’s designed protective space, giving them room to live in the event of a crash and prevents them from colliding with other occupants in the vehicle. A seat belt also keeps the driver correctly positioned behind the wheel to help maintain control of a vehicle. The failure to wear a seat belt results in more motor vehicle fatalities in North Dakota than most other factors.

Primary Seat Belt Law

  • All front seat and back seat occupants must be buckled up regardless of age.
  • Children younger than 8 years of age are required to ride in a child restraint (car seat or booster seat).
  • A correctly used seat belt may be substituted for children younger than 8 years of age who are at least 4'9" tall.
