Highway 91 Near Harvey 


BISMARCK – The North Dakota State Legislature can be full of many complicated bills, but some are simple and lighthearted. 

The House Political Subdivisions heard Senate Bill 2146 Friday. The bill would designate Highway 91 near Harvey as the shortest highway in North Dakota and would have the Department of Transportation set up signs saying so.  

“This is something that came before us from members of the Harvey community,” said sponsor of the bill Sen. Jerry Klein, R-Dis. 14, Fessenden. “Working with the DOT we learned that you can’t just go to the DOT and say hey we’d like to designate this highway. We have to have legislation. So here we are.” 

Klein said he believes the road is approximately 0.25 miles. The bill was given a Do Pass recommendation by a vote of 11 to 0 and will be sent to the House floor for consideration.
