Stanley Consultants Selected to Design Rehabilitation of North Dakota Highway 20

November 28, 2014 

Stanley Consultants has been selected by the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) to provide design services for the rehabilitation of Highway 20. The project will begin at the urban limits of Jamestown and extend north 21 miles to the west junction of Highway 9.

The rehabilitation project will include a hot bituminous overlay the entire length of the project, and widening of the roadway and shoulder for five miles near Jamestown, improving safety and meeting transportation requirements. Stanley Consultants will provide preliminary engineering, environmental and design services for the project. The final design is expected to be completed by September 2015 with construction taking place during the 2016 construction season.

“We’ve very pleased to be selected by the NDDOT for this project,” said Bismarck Office Operations Manager Vance Hanson. “Though our Bismarck Office is relatively new, Stanley Consultants has been providing engineering services in North Dakota for 50 years. They range from flood protection and municipal water and wastewater plants to planning and DOD airbase projects. We’re excited to add transportation to our North Dakota services list.”
