Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The year just started and The City of Fargo and ND-DOT are already letting you know about a huge construction project happening this Spring.

A chunk of 32nd avenue south will be widening from 4 to 6 lanes.

All of the white will eventually be replaced with orange 32nd avenue south starting at 32nd street, going over the I-29 bridge and ending at 42nd street.

The city of Fargo will completely repave and widen 32nd street to 36th street and from 39th to 42nd street.

The DOT will expand the bridge and add a loop ramp.

All of the construction will take place at one time.

Estimated construction costs is over $19-million.

Bidding for the project will start in February.

The city says the project is needed because of the continued growth of the southwest part of Fargo.

"The current roadway is going to be overcapacity soon and it's to try and cut down future delays in traffic," said Jeremy Gordon, City of Fargo Transportation Engineer.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to start in April and end around November.
