Overnight Sheyenne Street Closures 8 PM – 6 AM Tuesday Through Thursday in West Fargo
April 29, 2019
Starting, Tuesday, April 30, through Thursday, May 2, crews will close Sheyenne Street to all traffic underneath the Interstate 94 (I-94) bridges for overnight work. Between 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. crews will start the demolition of the existing eastbound bridge structure over Sheyenne Street. The Sheyenne Street night closures will give crews additional working room and ensure safety of motorists traveling through the area. Contractors planned this work during hours to impact the fewest drivers as possible.
During the overnight work, access to travel on/off I-94 and on/off Sheyenne Street will remain for certain directions of travel surrounding the interchange:
- Exiting westbound I-94 traffic – only can travel north on Sheyenne Street
- Exiting eastbound I-94 traffic – only can travel south on Sheyenne Street
- North side of bridges – Sheyenne Street traffic can use westbound I-94 on-ramp
- South side of bridges – Sheyenne Street traffic can use eastbound I-94 on-ramp
By the morning rush hour, Sheyenne Street underneath I-94 will open to north and south travel with one driving lane in each direction between East Beaton Drive to 26th Avenue W.
Drivers are reminded that Sheyenne Street is closed to thru-traffic south of 32nd Avenue W. to 40th Avenue W. intersection for City of West Fargo Segment 3 improvement project. To continue south on Sheyenne Street, the best driving route would be to use Veterans Boulevard to 52nd Avenue South to Sheyenne Street.
Eastbound and westbound I-94 traffic is being carried head-to-head in one lane in each direction for about 1 mile surrounding the Sheyenne Street interchange. Interstate traffic will remain in this driving pattern until late fall. Speeds on I-94 are reduced to 45 mph on the interstate and 25 mph on the interstate ramps.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) Fargo District along with the City of West Fargo are improving the Interstate 94 (I-94) and Sheyenne Street corridor. Throughout the second-year of project work, crews will install or build the remaining infrastructure to complete the new modified single point urban interchange design:
- Eastbound Sheyenne Street bridge
- Three additional interchange on and off ramps
- Extend interchange ramp connections
- Permanent traffic signals
- Storm sewer and utility improvements
- Reconstruct Sheyenne Street under the bridges between E Beaton Drive to Christensen Drive to two driving lanes plus turn lanes in each direction
An easy choice a motorist can make as a driver when you enter a work zone is to slow down. Motorists are encouraged to eliminate distractions and pay attention to traffic changes throughout this dynamic work zone.
