WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The state Transportation Department says two lanes of a truck bypass in Williston are open.

Officials tell the Williston Herald that the Northwest Truck Reliever Route is intended to ease traffic congestion in the city and make driving safer.

The lanes were open on Saturday.

Williston Mayor Howard Klug says the route to divert truck traffic away from town will cost the state about $162 million.

Work on the southbound lanes of the route is expected to be completed in August.
