WEST FARGO - A portion of Sheyenne Street will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, for paving of new median lanes. The street will be closed from north of 19th Avenue West to south of 13th Avenue West.

This closure is necessary due to limited space for paving equipment to operate, trucks to haul material and personnel safety. Residents should use Veterans Boulevard/Ninth Street East during the closure to travel north and south.

During the closure, residents with driveway access on the west side of the road, north of 19th Avenue West, will be able to use a temporary access road. The 19th Avenue West intersection will remain open, but motorists will only be able to turn south on to Sheyenne Street.

In connection with these paving operations, the contractor will begin sawing operations after paving, which may last into the evening. The sawing allows crews to control the cracking of the pavement and avoid premature failure of the road. This will result in an increase in construction noise that lasts outside of normal construction hours.

This closure is part of the city of West Fargo's Sheyenne Street reconstruction project, which is designed to improve traffic safety and efficiency from 13th Avenue West to 40th Avenue West. The two-year project began this year and coincides with the North Dakota Department of Transportation's Interstate 94 interchange reconfiguration project.
