Knife River, a subsidiary of MDU Resources Group, has received a $51M North Dakota highway construction contract for a bypass project on Highway 85. This is the largest road construction contract Knife River has been awarded in the state. Knife River plans to begin work on the Highway 85 bypass contract next week and is expecting this year to complete about 1.5 miles of the approximately eight-mile project. Knife River will start construction again in the spring as weather allows and expects to complete the project in the fall of 2014.
