Traffic on southbound Interstate-29 will be disrupted slightly near Main Avenue today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to do routine maintenance.

"Traffic coming into the construction zone on southbound I-29 should see little or no delay," said project coordinator Kevin Gorder. "Traffic entering southbound I-29 from Main Avenue will lose their acceleration lane, which has the potential to cause delays for those motorists."

Currently, both eastbound and westbound Main Avenue traffic enters southbound I-29 from the loop ramp on the northwest corner of the I-29 and Main Avenue intersection.

"If all motorists use caution on southbound I-29 today, there shouldn't be any problems," Gorder said.

In addition, the North Dakota Department of Transportation expects westbound I-94 to be completely open by the end of the week.

The acceleration/deceleration lane has been closed and all traffic slowed to 40 miles per hour until repairs are made to a bridge damaged recently by a truck hauling a wind turbine.

When re-opened, speed limits on the bridge will return to 55 miles per hour.

On Thursday, bridge beam replacement will begin over the currently closed north lane of 13th Avenue South.

Traffic is not expected to be impacted until beams are ready to be placed over the south lanes.
