FARGO — The final phase of 10th Street North reconstruction work in the railroad underpass has begun in north Fargo.
University Drive has been converted to head-to-head traffic, to carry both northbound and southbound traffic between the 4th Avenue North to 7th Avenue North intersections.
Motorists will encounter the following changes to their route:
Open: 4th Avenue North and 10th Street North intersection is fully open to east-west traffic.
Closed: 10th Street North between 4th Avenue North to 6th Avenue North.
Detour: Head-to-head traffic on University Drive, one lane in each direction between 4th Avenue North to 7th Avenue North.
All other one-way northbound traffic will remain on 10th Street North and southbound traffic will remain on University Drive.
Watch the route video:
Single lane closure on #10thStN extends north to 12th Ave N for northbound drivers - Crews working on sidewalk, driveways and bus shelters north of 6th Ave N - University Drive will carry head-to-head traffic between 4th - 7th Ave N later this week and underpass will close https://t.co/x8r3cCxQnG— FargoStreets (@Fargostreets) May 13, 2019
Until next week, the single lane closures on 10th Street North between 6th Avenue North to 12th Avenue North will remain to allow crews to safely complete driveway tie-ins, sidewalks and bus shelter work between 6th Avenue North and 12th Avenue North.
10th Street North between 6th Avenue North to 7th Avenue North: Single northbound driving lane carried on eastside.
10th Street North between 7th Avenue North to 12th Avenue North: Single northbound driving lane carried on westside.
Pedestrian access will remain open to north/south travel on 10th Street North and east/west crossings at all intersections between 6th and 12th Avenues, including in the railroad underpass on the east side of the roadway.
The full roadway closure is needed to complete underground utility and lift station connections and improve the roadway in the railroad underpass. By the end of June, all work is expected to be complete and traffic control will be removed from the north Fargo area.
Later this month or early June, crews will have short-term closures at various times on 10th Street from 4th Avenue North to 13th Avenue North to complete boulevard grading, seeding, permanent signing and striping as well as permanent striping on University Drive.
The project work in north Fargo is to upgrade the roadway of 10th Street North between 4th and 12th Avenue North intersections and improve safety.
