Access to I-29 from 19th Avenue North to open

Crews anticipate to open north to south travel through the 45th Street North and 19th Avenue North intersection and access to Interstate 29 from 19th Avenue North as a two-way stop in the afternoon. Special to the Forum.

FARGO — Weather permitting, on Tuesday Sept. 25, crews anticipate to open north to south travel through the 45th Street North and 19th Avenue North intersection and access to Interstate 29 from 19th Avenue North as a two-way stop in the afternoon.

Northbound and southbound 19th Avenue North traffic will have the right of way. The new 45th Street North intersection has moved to the north, with the new road alignment of 19th Avenue North. The existing intersection has been removed and railroad crossing has been updated.

The remaining work needed to open the new intersection to motorists is weather dependent. Continued inclement weather today will push curb work until tomorrow or the following day. Once the concrete is placed and achieves design strength, the intersection will be able to be open.

Travel on 19th Avenue North from west of the new 45th Street North intersection to 57th Street North intersection will remain closed to through traffic. Local traffic is allowed to visit area businesses just west of the intersection by use of new west road alignment. A marked detour route will be found on 19th Avenue North for additional west access.

Access to businesses west of 45th Street North and 19th Avenue North intersection:

• I-29 to north on 45th Street North to new 19th Avenue North roadway realignment.

• New 19th Avenue North roadway realignment to temporary access point at Sheyenne Loop.

• Maintained for local traffic only.

Access to businesses and Horse Park on the west end of 19th Avenue North:

• 12th Avenue North to 57th Street North to 19th Avenue North.

• Maintained for local traffic only.

• Access south of 45th Street North via 12th Avenue North.

Motorists will use these alternative access routes throughout the remainder of the 2018 construction season. To finish the reconstruction and infrastructure improvement projects, crews will work to complete underground utility upgrades and concrete paving of the new west portion of 19th Avenue North from new west road alignment to 57th Street North.

The east portion of the new 19th Avenue North roadway alignment opened in July. The 45th Street North crossing over the railroad tracks to prepare for a possible future railroad underpass has been completed. For more information, visit www.fargostreets.com.
