WILLISTON, North Dakota — A developer spearheading a proposed $400 million housing and retail complex in downtown Bismarck has been chosen to redevelop the site of Williston's airport after operations there are relocated.
The Williston City Commission this week selected Phoenix-based Cardon Development Group to work with the city on a plan for the current site of Sloulin Field International Airport, which sits on 800 acres. Cardon was one of five finalists.
Traffic and passenger boardings have boomed at Williston's airport along with oil development in the region in recent years. Regional jet service is now available to Minneapolis, Denver and Houston. Williston officials are planning a $250 million airport at a site 11 miles northwest of the oil patch hub.
The city is still finalizing the contract with Cardon.
