Traffic shifts and overnight detours announced for 25th Street
FARGO – Beginning Tuesday morning, motorists will notice a traffic shift as they travel through the 25th Street South reconstruction project.
Traffic will be moved to the west side, where motorists will drive on new pavement in the southbound roadway. Crews will begin pavement removal on the east side of the project to prepare for the new roadbed.
In addition to the traffic shift, crews will also be setting temporary overnight closures on Interstate 94 as they set bridge beams on the east edge of the existing bridge deck.
Expect the following overnight detours:
- Between 8 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday, westbound traffic on I-94 will be detoured to the northeast ramp, across 25th Street and will merge back on to I-94 from the northwest on-ramp.
- From 8 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, I-94 eastbound traffic will be detoured around the 25th Street interchange down 25th Street to 32nd Avenue South and then to University Drive where they will be able to merge back onto I-94.
Motorists on 25th Street will not be able to use the eastbound loop ramp to access eastbound I-94.
Overnight detours are needed to ensure the safety of the traveling public and crews that work on the project, as the bridge deck is directly above I-94.
Expect delays and consider alternate routes if possible.
