West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Getting around a major construction site on this first day of school in West Fargo went much smoother than expected.

Crews are still working on the project on Veterans Boulevard, where the district's two new schools are located.

Only one lane in each direction is open right now.

Crews are adding sidewalks and crosswalks, and working on intersections.

The project was supposed to be done before school started, but the late spring start caused delays.

Parents say they're surprised how quickly they got their students to

school.

Brian Grave- Parent: "I was expecting a mess, I was expecting to have a lot of traffic and people not quite sure where to go or what to do, and I was actually pleasantly surprised, it seemed to operate pretty smoothly."

The project should wrap up in two weeks.
