Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The next four weeks will be challenging for those driving one of North Dakota’s busiest stretches of road, Main Avenue in Fargo. Crews are doing mill and overlay work. WDAY 6 Reporter Kevin Wallevand joins us live with more at 4th Street and Main.

There are nearly a dozen active construction projects going in Fargo; the latest, this 20-block stretch of Main.

It will test your patience and your car's springs and shocks, a crowded Main Avenue as crews take up the old and lay down new.

But city engineers have made some changes; hoping traffic will look less like this during the high peak times.

For those stuck in stop and go traffic along Main, there is tolerance for this short construction window of opportunity. And there is more to come, Minn-DOT will be working on Highway 75 and 10 next week in Moorhead and soon major work on a busy 20th Street south in Moorhead.
