Largest Contract Ever in McKenzie County for Single Road Repair -- The Bakken, North Dakota, USA

Link here to the Bismarck Tribune.

The specifics are not that important: $17 million to patch a county road in McKenzie County.  It is a 12-mile "connector" road northeast of Watford City, near the ONEOK Garden Creek natural gas facility, if I'm not mistaken.

What makes the article worth reading are all the data points. This one might be the most important data point: of all the active drilling rigs in North Dakota, one-fourth of them are in McKenzie County; 55 rigs currently in that county. 

This is smack dab in the bull's eye of the Bakken.
