Road Construction season beginning
Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Construction season for the North Dakota DOT is kicking off with the big 25th street project just around the corner.
The $14 million project is expected to start shortly after approval from the Fargo city commission.
Once construction is underway, 25th street will be reduced to one lane each direction while crews widen the road and add an eastbound on ramp to I-94 by Doolittles.
The DOT says the 27,000 drivers that travel that road daily may want to find another route.
Kevin Gorder/ ND DOT Asst. District Engineer: "We're going to try to maintain traffic as best we can, but you're mixing interstate traffic with a very heavily traveled corridor in Fargo. So, there's going to be some slow going around those interchange terminals."
The project should be finished by the end of November another target area for the DOT this summer; Micro-surfacing I-94 between West Fargo and Casselton.
