Scenic byway receives development funds

LAKE METIGOSHE – The Federal Highway Administration has awarded $400,000 to the North Dakota Department of Transportation to support the development of a new shared use path along Highway 43, part of the Turtle Mountain State Scenic Byway near Lake Metigoshe, according to Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-ND.

The project includes trail bed preparation and signage updates, construction of a separate facility to enhance safety for pedestrians and bicyclists and improvements to a nonmotorized connectivity, which would eliminate a gap in the existing scenic byway trail network.
