Indian artifacts derail Williston bypass project

The artifacts uncovered along the preferred route for the bypass include burial sites and stone circles, Ziegler said during a meeting Wednesday with city and Williams County officials.

“This is unprecedented. In my years in project development, I’ve never seen this kind of concentration,” Ziegler said. “Up to 20 percent of these sites are burials. We don’t want to start at all; we just want to leave it. We have never, ever gone through any burial grounds. If we do, it’s by accident.”
