Overnight detours on I-94 near 25th Street Cause Traffic Congestion

Posted: Updated:
Beginning on Wednesday night, crews will be removing the west edge of the bridge deck on the 25th Street South bridge over Interstate 94. For the next two nights, overnight traffic on I-94 will be rerouted over and around the work zone.

Drivers can expect detours on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday June 4, 5 and 6, during the overnight hours of 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. During that time, westbound traffic on I-94 will be detoured over the top of 25th street Bridge and merge back on to I-94 from the northwest on-ramp.

Between 8:00 p.m. Thursday night and 6:00 a.m. Friday morning, eastbound traffic on Interstate-94 will be detoured around the 25th Street bridge. 
Traffic will be detoured down 25th Street to 32nd Avenue South and then to University Drive where they will be able to merge back onto the I-94. People driving on 25th Street will not be able to use the eastbound loop to access I-94 and head east.

Construction crews are removing the west edge of the 25th Street bridge deck in order to widen it later in the construction project. The North Dakota Department of Transportation says the
 detours are needed because the partial removal of the existing bridge deck is directly over the eastbound lanes of I-94 and detouring the traffic is the safest way to accommodate the work.

The NDDOT scheduled this work to occur overnight when traffic volumes are at their lowest, to help minimize impacts to the traveling public. Drivers are still encouraged to find alternate routes, if possible. The detours are expected to end by the morning of June 6.
