UND's New Campus Road Bridge Opens Monday Morning

Posted: Updated:

The new bridge on Campus Road at the University of North Dakota will open for regular traffic starting at 10:00 Monday morning. 

University officials say the new bridge meets all Federal Highway Administration requirements, and is a substantial improvement over the previous structure.

Its span is higher over the English Coulee, turns are more gradual, the sidewalk is wider, and it is fully lit. 

The bridge was built through a partnership with the North Dakota Department of Transportation, the City of Grand Forks, and UND. 

The Federal Highway Administration paid 80 percent of the $1.7 million cost, with UND funding the remainder. 

Facilities Management requests that drivers use caution in the area since some work will continue.  Restoration of the area will take place in the spring.
