Project Update for: Main Avenue, West Fargo
November 18, 2011
Fargo, N.D. - The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT)-Fargo District-would like to update the traveling public on preliminary work beginning on the West Fargo Main Avenue project scheduled for 2012.
Traffic will be reduced from two lanes to one on Main Avenue in West Fargo. The westbound lane will be closed until inclement weather halts the project. The lane closure will begin at 9th Street NE and continue to 6th Street E. Crews will be starting the preparation work for new detention ponds that will line Main Avenue in the ditch areas.
“Detention ponds in a low lying area are designed to temporarily hold a set amount of water while slowing draining to another location, more or less created to aid in flood control,” said Kevin Gorder, assistant district engineer for NDDOT. “This initiative will help increase capacity of storm sewer drains in the area.”
The lane closure is needed to accommodate truck traffic that will be hauling materials from the worksite out toward the Red River Fairgrounds.
Motorists should be aware of trucks and equipment entering and exiting the work zone surrounding the lane closure. Speeds are 30 mph in the area.
