The most recent Omnibus spending bill Congress approved has a provision that eases load restriction on North Dakota Interstate highways.
It affects I-29 and I-94.
"What that means is, we can probably decrease our cost of transportation by 30 percent," said North Dakota Commerce Commissioner Jay Schuler. "In the case of containers, we'll be able to pull two 20 foot containers versus one."
Schuler said there's a little more expense on loading and unloading.
