I-94 Micro-Surfacing - Westbound I-94 East of Casselton
Work will begin in summer 2014.
This project will take about a month to complete, weather permitting.
The micro-surfacing project will occur on Interstate 94 (I-94), west of West Fargo from Raymond (the first exit past the diversion on westbound I-94) to Casselton. Work zone is approximately 11 miles. Project will occur in the westbound direction of I-94 only. Crews will apply an protective seal coat to extends the life of pavement.
Throughout the project, motorists will encounter:
- One lane of traffic closed for crews to work throughout the entire stretch of the work zone
- Speeds will be reduced
This project is a preventative maintenance projects for the Fargo District. Micro-surfacing is a preventative maintenance strategy that can extend the life of pavement. There is rutting that is occurring on the roadway due to traffic loads. This preventive maintenance will smooth the roadway for motorists.
Micro-surfacing is an cost effective method to renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities. It protects the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation. Protective layer which preserves the underlying structure and prevents the needs for more expensive repairs in the future, similar to painting a house
NOTE: this is a different type of preventative maintenance project, similar but different than concrete pavement repair (CPR) project that occurred on I-94 (Red River Bridge to West Fargo)
through Fargo last summer and will occur on I-29 Hillsboro this year
Approximately $2 million
