Cleared of snow, 19th Avenue North reopens in Fargo
The road reopened as of 7 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 24.
FARGO — In north Fargo, 19th Avenue between Dakota Drive and 18th Street has reopened to traffic as of 7 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 24.
City crews cleared the snow from the avenue that is prone to snowdrifts, near Hector International Airport.
Strong winds caused severely reduced visibility Thursday morning, which prompted the closure of that stretch of 19th Avenue North.
Also Thursday morning, emergency crews dealt with a six-car pileup in the 2000 block of 19th Avenue North.
The crash occurred when the lead vehicle slowed down because of the road conditions, according to Fargo police. That car was rear-ended by the next vehicle, which caused the four vehicles behind them to crash into them both.
Medics took two motorists by ambulance to be treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. Four of the vehicles were damaged enough that they had to be towed from the scene. No citations were issued, police said.
