HAZELTON, N.D. (AP) - The construction of a four-state oil pipeline is giving a boost to some businesses in southern North Dakota, including a campground.

Jeff Magrum owns the Badger Creek RV campground in Hazelton. He tells KXMB-TV (https://bit.ly/29qSU3c ) that the campground is at full capacity for the first time since it opened three years ago.

Magrum says it is “really nice” to see an influx of people to the area because of the construction of what’s known as the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The 1,150-mile, $3.8-billion pipeline will carry oil from northwest North Dakota to a tank storage facility in south-central Illinois.

The station reports that about 500 construction workers have temporarily moved to Emmons County. Aside from Hazelton, workers are staying in Sterling, Steele and Napoleon.
