I would like to respond to the story "ND company demonstrates building a border wall," published April 21:

One participant was Sen. Kevin Cramer. When I read this, my thought was: Perhaps Cramer should concentrate on projects that directly involve all of North Dakota, especially since our state has problems of its own. Instead of focusing on border walls in Arizona, how about focusing on bridges in North Dakota?

According to the American Road and Transportation Building Association (2017 study), 1,400 bridges in North Dakota are in need of repair and 660, or 15%, are structurally deficient. The cost for repairs is $262 million.

Yes, we need structures, but not walls in Arizona. Instead, how about bridge structural repairs in North Dakota?
