“Backwater Bridge” Re-opening March 17, 2017 at #StandingRock


“Backwater Bridge” 4 miles north of Cannon Ball, ND has been closed since October 27, 2016 due to actions as part of the #StandingRock Water Protector movement. Although authorities determined the bridge to be “Structurally Sound” on January 12, 2017, the bridge remained closed due to law enforcement’s concerns about the camps nearby.

The bridge opened to the public at Noon on March 17th, 2017 as part of the phased re-opening of the public roadway which connects the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to the Bismarck/Mandan area. Travelers through the area must remain in their vehicles and will be escorted by a pilot vehicle.
