FARGO -- Everyone in North Dakota knows that there are two seasons: winter and construction.

But now that winter is right around the corner, construction season is wrapping up.

Projects across West Fargo and Fargo are expected to be complete within the next month or two.

But the construction on South University Drive is expected to be completely finished in about two weeks.

The I-94 and University Interchange Improvement Project ran into some problems, causing it to be finished two months later than expected.

Crews found shallow gas mains and drainage issues.

Kevin Gorder from ND Department of Transportation said crews now only have minimal work left on the $4.9 million project.

"The weather looks good, so it might go a little quicker," Gorder said, "But we got to get it fitted, and then get the concrete placed and then let that cure. So it's probably a week or two out, but it's coming."

The project now has extended turn lanes creating better traffic flow. It also has added lanes plus interstate turning lanes, as well as pedestrian paths underneath interstates.
