I-31

Updated!

Projected Alignment: Fargo to Canadian border at Pembina

History and Notes: The original designation for what is now I-29 in this area, assigned August 14, 1957. On October 18 of that year, the Bureau of Public Roads recommended an interstate linking Fargo with Sioux Falls, SD, where I-29 was originally designated to begin. North Dakota officials recommended changing the I-31 designation to I-29 for the entire route; this was approved on February 20, 1958.

ND-44 Shield

Alignment: Drayton (ND-66) to I-29 south of Drayton

Distance: 3 miles

Intersecting Interstates: I-29 south of Drayton

History and Notes: In a previous life, ND-44 was much longer. ND-44 basically followed the current routing of I-29 from Joliette to just north of Grand Forks (this is the area where US-81 diverts northwest from I-29, then comes back about 15 miles south of the Canadian border).

North Dakota native Ryan Fischer provided me with the following information:

ND-44: "Old 44" in N.D. parlance. This road has a very interesting history. First of all, it runs through my birthplace, Drayton, N.D. Second of all, while it was the most direct route from Grand Forks to the Canadian border, it remained unpaved until the 1950s. Grafton, the larger community ten miles to the west of 44, got the U.S. route, the paved road--in short, the bulk of the attention.

As you note, 44 was much longer at one time. However, much of 44's former route is traveled to this day by anyone who takes I-29. Until very recently, the stretches of Old 44 were very visible on I-29 itself. 44 was at a grade lower than Interstate specifications, and so when you approached these sections on I-29 (southbound lanes around the Walsh County-Grand Forks County line, northbound lanes from south of the Grafton exit up to the Drayton exit), you actually descended onto Old 44's surface. During the flood of '79, I remember that the northbound lanes around Grafton were flooded, while the southbound ones weren't.

As 44 was paved only shortly before the Interstate Highway System was proposed, I suppose it was thought that 44 contained many stretches of perfectly usable surface (concrete, no less!), and that lanes for opposing traffic could be simply added alongside the existing road. Progress struck an unfortunate blow to the historic stretches of 44 when a major construction project brought all of I-29 up to Interstate standards. Progress aside, I still loved the goofiness and asymmetry of those stretches of I-29 which used portions of Old 44.

It features 3.5 miles of new roadway, with new bridges over the BNSF rail line, the Red River & Western rail line, and Pipestem Creek."
