Rain Not Stopping Moorhead Construction

Posted: Updated:

If you thought this continued rain could buy you some construction free time, think again. Crews in Moorhead worked through the rain yesterday cutting concrete and plan to continue work again today.

The project runs along Highway 10 from 34th St. N. to 8th St. then down 8th St. to 40th Ave. S. Along that stretch of road, crews will make pedestrian improvements, run fiber optic cable under the roadway, replace three traffic lights, and install a new high visibility crosswalk signal at 8th St. and 10th Ave.

The project continues on Main Ave. from 8th St. to the Red River where crews will resurface that entire stretch of roadway and replace four traffic lights.

No full road closures or detours are anticipated for this project, just various lane closures as the project moves forward. If this project sounds familiar, that's because it's the same project The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) wanted to do last year, but was halted because of budget and time concerns.

This years project comes in at a cost of $4.8 million and is scheduled to run until September. MNDOT stresses that business in the construction zone will stay open and they'll work with them to ensure the public can access them throughout the project.
