The North Dakota Department of Transportation is implementing "safety corridors" on sections of three North Dakota highways.
The designated highway sections will include enhanced safety features and an increased law enforcement presence. Drivers may notice additional signage and more visible pavement markings.

Two of the safety corridors undergoing enhancements this summer are Highway 85 from Watford City to state Highway 68, and a section of Highway 52 from Brooks Junction to Velva. A third safety corridor is planned for next summer on Highway 83 from Bismarck to Washburn.
“Safety corridors are selected based on data that shows these locations have a high number of vehicle crashes,” department Safety Division Director Karin Mongeon said. “The idea is to use engineering and technology as solutions to change dangerous driving behavior and reduce the number of crashes on state highways.”
