    I am a historic preservation specialist working with FEMA in ND. We have a Public Applicant seeking funding for a bridge repair thought to be built by a government works project in the 1930s. The GPS coordinates are 48.568564, -98.818602, approximately 10 miles southwest of Alsen, ND over the Starkweather Coolee. I am also interested in any other bridges and culverts in Cavalier County that are known to have been built by the PWA,etc.
