Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A large scale highway construction project is kicking off Monday in Fargo.

The North Dakota DOT is beginning road work on I-94 between Veterans Boulevard and the Red River Bridge.

The three-phase project will include concrete and pavement repair, preventative tri-level maintenance, and painting the interstate pedestrian walking bridge green.

I-94 will be reduced by one lane in each direction while the project lasts and speed limits will drop down to 40 miles per hour, most likely causing rush hour traffic.

Kevin Gorder, NDDOT Asst. District Engineer: “The last time we were out there was 2003, so it's been 10 years, so we want to go out and fix those spots that have been damaged in the last ten years, fix those up and hopefully keep that roadway functioning at a high level.”

Gorder says the work should last about three months. He plans to release an updated timeline including more specific areas before Monday.
