BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The welcome rains in western North Dakota have put a damper on plans to clean up a 200-mile stretch of highway.

The project is meant to pick up trash along Highway 85 from Bowman, in far southwestern North Dakota, to the oil patch in the northwestern part of the state. Citizens and volunteers from various groups had signed up for this week’s effort.

Organizer Cal Klewin tells the Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1VAf06k ) that the cleanup has been extended through May 7 and groups are being asked to participate when they can. He says the state Transportation Department will patrol the roadway through that time and be on the lookout of trash bags.
