Multiple Changes Coming Tomorrow to 32nd Avenue Work Zone
May 8, 2017
FARGO, N.D. (May 8, 2017) – Contractors for the 32nd Avenue reconstruction and I-29 bridge widening project have several changes coming to the work zone beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, May 9. At this time:
- 36th Street S: Closing tomorrow morning between 32nd Ave. and the Luther Family Ford building for approximately three weeks, weather permitting. The closure is necessary while crews completely reconstruct 36th St. and add two additional lanes to accommodate for increasing traffic volumes and create better turning patterns for drivers. All business access will be maintained via side streets, with 32nd Ave. eastbound drivers detoured to 33rd Street S and westbound drivers detoured to 32nd Street S, then to 35th Avenue S. Truck traffic can also exit I-29 using 52nd Avenue, and travel north on 36th St.
- Temporary lane closures on I-29: Beginning tomorrow morning and lasting until late this week during non-peak travel hours, drivers will experience temporary lane closures while contractors remove a concrete barrier wall on the south side of the I-29 bridge. Crews will start by closing one southbound lane on the west side of I-29, then will work their way over to the east side of I-29 lane-by-lane.
- 32nd Ave./33rd St. S Intersection: North side intersection should reopen to traffic in all directions by end-of-day tomorrow, weather permitting.
- 32nd Ave./32nd St. S Intersection: Crews will begin work on the second half of the north side intersection. Lanes through the intersection will remain reduced for another week, weather permitting, open to northbound traffic only. Southbound traffic is detoured to 30th Ave. S.
Traffic through the east and west ends of the work zone remains side-by-side on the south side of 32nd Ave., with drivers crossing over to the north side on the I-29 bridge. The SW and SE I-29 loop ramps are closed for improvements, with all interstate access maintained via ramps on the north side of 32nd Ave.
Contractors are continuing paving efforts this week, so drivers may continue to see flaggers or police present to slow down traffic. Slow speeds are necessary so concrete can set and gain its required strength.
