Just noticed that there is no general thread for either of the Dakotas. North Dakota has some nice roads, but I'm really surprised that they haven't boosted their speed limit to 80 yet.

They have done some widening on 2 and 85 ing the oil fields. Also the Ports to Plains in Mid South is relevant. It includes Western North Dakota.

If you search the Central State board with the term "Williston" or "Bismarck", you will find various threads going back to 2013 talking about the various upgrades they have been doing.

The legislature voted on it last year, but it did not pass.  I wouldn't be surprised if it came up again next year. Considering South Dakota and Montana are at 80, there will be push to do it.  Plus, those states have had at 80 for a few years, how do the fatality and speeding numbers compare to when it was 75?  That would be part of the argument.

What are your 2 lane and 4 lane expressway speeds?
