Highways, Funding and Maintenance
As a result of any non-agricultural construction, if heavily-used township or county roads are damaged, the townships or counties should be fully compensated for the damages to the roads.
We support state funding for repairs and maintenance of county and township roads.
We believe that when hard surfaced roads are resurfaced or top-lifted, the shoulder should also be raised.
North Dakota counties shall not mow ditches before July 15 with exceptions for road construction.
We support a state cost share program to allow for improvements when township/county roads, ditches, or bridges require improvements.
We support efforts by the North Dakota Public Service Commission to work for equity in commodity freight rates.
We encourage safe and courteous practices by farmers transporting machinery and promote public awareness of farm machinery being transported on North Dakota roads. We support lawful movement of all types of farm machinery at night on all roads in North Dakota.
We stand in opposition to any political subdivisions creating an airport authority board to bypass county commission and township authority in creating a new airport that is not in current city limits.
We support the creation and implementation of tools and technologies that allow our products to be transported efficiently to market.
We support the use of a unified rural road labeling system.
Road signs should be staggered to allow passage of wide equipment.
