Travel Alert: More Changes Coming to I-94 Project in Fargo

Posted: Updated:
NDDOT - Fargo District -

The North Dakota Department of Transportation – Fargo District – would like to share traffic control updates for the Interstate 94 (I-94) concrete pavement repair project. The current work zone for this project is from University Drive South to 9th Street East in West Fargo in both directions.

Starting Monday, July 15, at 6 a.m. -

·         Eastbound I-94 will be reduced to two lanes of traffic from the pedestrian bridge to the Red River bridge in addition to the lane closures in place between I-29 and the pedestrian bridge in the eastbound roadway.

During the week of July 15, crews will be closing the right lane on westbound I-94 from 9th St. E. to the I-29 / I-94 tri-level ramp. Traffic will then be traveling in the left lane of the interstate. Drivers should also be aware that interstate ramps between 9th St. E and the I-29/ I-94 tri-level ramp may be narrowed as concrete pavement repair work continues. The narrowing of ramps will be short term.

All project changes are weather dependent.

As a reminder, throughout the remaining eastbound work zone, interstate merge points have been shortened at all on-ramps to eastbound I-94. In addition the third lane upon exiting the tri-level ramp (southbound I-29 to eastbound I-94) is closed for traffic. The tri-level ramp and pedestrian bridge project work continues. Where traffic control and crews are present, 40 mph speed limits will remain in effect through the work zones to protect motorists and crews due to shortened merge points and narrowed traffic lanes. Speeds will increase to 55 mph in open sections of roadway.

Significant delays are still expected if travel includes use of the tri-level ramp, especially where traffic is exiting the tri-level ramp and merging with eastbound I-94 traffic. Motorists also traveling on southbound I-29 will experience congestion while traffic is entering the tri-level ramp during peak traffic hours. Motorists are advised to find an alternate route of travel.

While traveling through the work zone, NDDOT urges motorists to take extra caution by eliminating all distractions, obeying posted signs and flaggers.
