Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Here's a reminder if you're driving or walking on NP or 1st Avenue North in Fargo: Stop and look both ways, because the streets are open in both directions.

Downtown's Broadway and 1st Avenue intersection reopened today, making way for two-way traffic. It marks the final phase of downtown's one-way to two-way conversion projects as NP also reopened earlier this summer.

People walking across the street who are used to the old one-way pattern say they welcome the change.

Richard Coon - Fargo Pedestrian: "I think it's better actually, especially for traffic and everything else like that. Everyone can come up, go up, come back down. It doesn't matter."

Officials say drivers should make more time for their work commutes, as it might take longer while people learn the new routes.
