County gravel heading to oil fields

11/17/11 (Thu)

The majority of Bakken Oil fields are located far to the west of Oliver County, but the affects of the boom have already arrived. Most noticeable is the heavier traffic, mainly trucks, traveling through the county and Center.
Truck traffic will soon increase because the boom has begun to reach into county resources, mainly aggregate for use in oil fields.
