I-29 Concrete Pavement Repairs (52nd Ave S to Main Ave)
After 6 a.m. on Monday, September 14, motorists can expect the following traffic impacts along I-29 starting at 32nd Avenue South to Main Avenue:
- OPEN: Right lane and center lane open in each direction
- CLOSED: Single left lane closure in each direction
- Speeds are reduced to 40 mph where traffic control is present
Motorists will stay in this traffic pattern for approximately one week. As work progress, the lane closure will move to the center and right lane and motorists will be shifted to the left lane.
The NDDOT is working on concrete pavement repairs (CPR) on Interstate 29 (I-29) between 52nd Avenue South and Main Avenue. Work will be done in sections to minimize impacts to traffic. Crews will begin by closing a single lane in each direction starting at 52nd Avenue South and moving north 2 miles. Once crews complete this section of roadway, work will continue north toward Main Avenue.
Work Zone Limits:
I-29 between 52nd Avenue South and Main Avenue. Work will be done in segments.
Project work begins August 31st and is slated to be completed by the end of October.
Need for Project:
CPR work is a preventive maintenance to help expand the life of the roadway. A full-depth repair involves removing and replacing a portion of a slab, or full slab, to the bottom of the concrete in order to restore the deteriorated areas. Full-depth saw-cuts are made around the perimeter of the repair area. The deteriorated concrete is removed. Dowels are replaced as needed and the new concrete is applied. Partial-depth repair may be used to repair spalled areas at joints and cracks. Most spalls are treated before they extend below the top third of the slab.
