Where will the road construction take place in 2012 in the Fargo district?
Thanks for writing! I contacted Jamie Olson at the North Dakota Department of Transportation. Hereâ€™s what she said:
â€œThe North Dakota Department of Transportation invites the public to view the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, which outlines the departmentâ€™s projects across the state for the next four years.
â€œThe budget for these projects depends on federal funding.
â€œPage 62 through 66 outlines the projects planned for the Fargo district for the next four years. In 2012, some of the major projects planned include:
E Reconstruction of 10th Street North between 12th and 17th avenues.
E Seventh Avenue North bridge over Interstate 29
E West Fargo Main Avenue between 45th Street and Fifth Street East
â€œOther projects include roadway overlays, chip seals and pavement repairs on various roadways throughout the district. Thank you for your question.â€
I also talked to Fargo City Engineer Mark Bittner. Here are some 2012 projects that he shared:
E Water main replacement on NP Avenue from University Drive to Second Street.
E Fourth Street from north of 12th Avenue South to NP Avenue
E 64th Avenue South from University to 25th Street. (tentative)
