ND-Medora Bridge
Medora commission picks preferred location for bridge
The Associated Press - March 17, 2017

MEDORA, N.D. - Billings County officials are considering a location to build a bridge across the Little Missouri River north of Medora.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that engineers recommended the Billings County Commission choose a location about 16 miles north of Medora based on an environmental impact study. KLJ Engineers, hired to conduct the study, will release its finding in about two months.

The project would span over the river and cut through a family's ranch operation on the west side of the river.

Sandy Short, the family's spokeswoman, says the family has always accommodated the oil industry, but will defend the Badlands against any bridges and roads.

Since 2012, study work for the second attempt to find a location for the project has cost $1.6 million.
