I-29 Concrete Pavement Repairs (52nd Ave S to Main Ave)
Crews will be completing roadway grinding operations and permanent pavement markings starting at 52nd Avenue South and moving north toward 32nd Avenue South. During these operations, lane closures will shift depending on work areas that need grinding. Work will be done in sections to minimize impacts to traffic.
After 6 a.m. on Wednesday, October 14, motorists can expect the following traffic impacts along I-29 starting at 52nd Avenue South and moving north 2 miles:
- OPEN: Single passing lane open in each direction
- CLOSED: Single driving lane closure in each direction
- Speeds will be reduced to 40 mph where traffic control is present
As work progress, the lane closure will move to the inside passing lane and motorists will be shifted to the outside driving 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.
