I-94 Temporary Driving Lane Reductions Begin Thursday Evening
October 22, 2019
Contractors for the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) Fargo District will be finishing the last section of roadway for maintaining or replacing parts of the Automatic Traffic Recording (ATR) system in one of the eastbound Interstate 94 (I-94) driving lane between University Drive and 8th Street South. The I-94 eastbound project work will require a single lane closure later this week.
On Thursday, October 24, work will initially begin in the shoulder around noon and the I-94 eastbound driving lane closure will begin at 7:00 p.m. Contractors will be working west of the bridge. All I-94 driving lanes will be restored to drivers by midnight.
Motorists should plan ahead and allow extra time for travel on Thursday for I-94 eastbound. Motorists are asked to minimize their distractions, slow down and be patient in the work area.
Speeds will be reduced on I-94 to 40 mph. The project work is weather dependent, and rain would delay the project to replace the daily traffic counts sensors.
Earlier this month, crews completed this maintenance work in three sections on southbound Interstate 29 (I-29) driving lanes near 19th Avenue North and three sections on westbound Interstate 94 (I-94) between 8th Street South and University Drive. The traffic count data is used for a variety of purposes to support transport planning and design considerations.
Eastbound I-94 traffic counts:
- Current traffic counts 39,198 cars and trucks per day
