Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - 25th Street in Fargo may see major changes to improve traffic and safety beginning next year.

Fargo city commissioners met to hear an update on the 25th street project this morning. City engineers are proposing a roughly $10.6 million plan that would change the street between 17th Avenue and 23rd Avenue.

They want to widen the road to six lanes, create an additional I-94 ramp and add a second left hand turning lane. Engineers say the plan would help current congestion and increase safety in that area.

Jeremy Gorden, Fargo Traffic Engineer: “We've been studying the road for nearly five years now and the traffic volumes projected in the future are going to make that road pretty tough to drive during the peak hours.”

City Commissioners are set to vote on the project this Monday and construction could begin in April of next year.
