Bakken truck traffic has N.D. counties scrambling to fix roads

WILLISTON, N.D. -- When the oil boom started in North Dakota, the roads were the first thing to give way. Mountrail County, where some of the first Bakken wells were drilled, has about 200 miles of paved county road. The other 1,100 miles that the county maintains are gravel, and they were no match for the influx of heavy oil field equipment. The trucks tore up the gravel roads, leaving the county government struggling to keep up with maintenance at a time when North Dakota is awash in oil revenue.
