FARGO — A request by Amazon to have the property value reduced for its almost year-old warehouse in Fargo has been rejected.

The company, which opened the warehouse in north Fargo last September, was seeking a reduction of $22.6 million from its $119.4 million tax valuation, suggesting the property be valued at $98.6 million.

The Cass County Commission, acting in its role as the board of equalization, turned down the request on a unanimous 5-0 vote. Full story here.

Starting this week, crews will be closing Interstate 29 at night between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for about one week to install bridge beams that will stretch across the 400-foot bridge span of an overpass on 64th Avenue.

A detour will take traffic to the east of the site along 52nd Avenue, University Drive and the 100th Avenue interchange. You can read more about the project here.
