Woodbury County Supervisors are mulling over a proposal to address heavy truck traffic and run-down gravel roads to the CF Industries expansion project near Salix. However, it carries a hefty price tag. County engineer Mark Nahra outlined a $927,000 plan for a mile-long expansion of a road to re-route trucks so they are not passing by homes. Supervisors have earmarked some money to address the damaged roads, but Nahra said he's also been working with CF to develop the plan.
