MacLean Bottoms, Apple Creek Road Work Completed

Monday, July 8, 2013

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department recently cooperated with Burleigh County to complete major gravel road repairs on the Oahe Wildlife Management Area south of Bismarck.

The project included reshaping and graveling nearly 8 miles of access roads at MacLean Bottoms and Apple Creek, which were severely damaged from the 2011 flood.

Bill Haase, wildlife resource management supervisor, said road projects are extremely costly. “A project of this size would not have been possible without the cooperation of the Burleigh County Highway Department and Park Board,” Haase said. “Because these locations are popular recreation areas, this was a high priority project that cost nearly $500,000.”
