Temporary Lane Closure on I-29 Tri-Level Bridge Deck
August 25, 2020
Starting this week, the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) contractors will begin the next phase of project work for the I-29 tri-level bridge. Once overnight jacking operations are complete, traffic control from the night closure will remain in place for ongoing daytime project work of sawing and removing concrete to install the concrete pavement sleeper slabs and expansion joints.
To allow crews enough room to safely complete operations, a single lane closure will be in place running the bridge’s entire length throughout the duration of work. Beginning tonight, August 25, at 7 p.m., motorists can expect the following traffic impacts on the I-29 tri-level bridge:
- CLOSED: Single right lane closure
- OPEN: Single left lane will remain open to traffic
- Speeds will be reduced to 40 mph where traffic control is present
Motorists will stay in this traffic pattern for approximately two weeks. Construction activities will include spall repairs, crack sealing, pavement grinding and expansion joint modifications. Project work is being done to correct the ride and profile at the bridge ends and minor structural repairs. The entire project is slated to be complete by mid-October.
