||By utilizing an early completion incentive with its contractor, the North Dakota Department of Transportation was able to repair the extensive landslide damage done to Highway 22 more than a month ahead of schedule, saving motorists from an additional six weeks of long detours. State Highway 22 is frequently traveled and serves as a major connection route for the oil and energy industry. When two landslides damaged the road, drivers were forced to take detours that required them to travel an extra 20 to 50 miles. NDDOT calculated the total additional user cost per day that the road was closed at $61,191. The early completion translated into a $2.5 million savings in additional road user costs.
