BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck Mayor Mike Seminary plans to create a transportation task force to address the impacts of growth, increased traffic and traffic congestion.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1IDZgmG ) that the task force will have representatives from Bismarck, Lincoln, Burleigh County and the state. They’ll review regional roadway plans and propose strategies to address the higher volumes of traffic.

Seminary says there’s an increasing amount of traffic moving into the city from Interstate 94 and U.S. Highway 83. He attributes it to the energy industry; business at the state Capitol; activities associated with being a regional medical hub; and retail, tourism and higher education activities.

Seminary says it’s a quality-of-life issue for area residents.
