Building of Interstate 94 Program Scheduled at North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK – A free public program, “Building the Interstate in North Dakota: Crossing the Missouri,” will be held Jan. 10, at 2 p.m., at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum, Bismarck. On Dec. 9, 1965, the North Dakota State Highway Department opened the portion of Interstate Highway 94 through Mandan and Bismarck. This presentation, “Crossing the Missouri,” tells the story of the construction of this segment of I-94. Presented by Bennett Kubischta from the North Dakota Department of Transportation, the program will include photographs and anecdotes taking participants back to the early 1960s to follow the building of the Captain Grant Marsh Bridge.
This program is part of the State Historical Society of North Dakota’s Sensational Sundays programs. Sensational Sundays are free programs sponsored by the State Historical Society that include a variety of lectures, concerts, movies, and tours that provide engaging, educational, historic, and cultural information.
