Westbound driving lane of I-94 will temporarily close in Fargo

FARGO, N.D. (Oct. 22, 2014) – Starting tomorrow, Thursday Oct. 23 at 9 a.m., the Interstate 94 (I-94) westbound driving lane (one lane) at the 25th Street South exit will temporarily close as crews work underneath the bridge.

Motorists will encounter a yield sign at the bottom of the 25th Street South northeast loop ramp and will need to merge into oncoming westbound I-94 traffic at this intersection. Two lanes of traffic will remain open to motorists through this stretch.
The project work will include removal of the roadway canopy from the bridge widening and installation of new mounted signage for motorists on the 25th Street South Bridge.

The westbound I-94 driving lane will reopen to traffic on Friday, Oct. 24, weather permitting.

The complete 25th Street South reconstruction project will add an additional driving lane in each direction on the stretch between 17th Avenue and 23rd Avenue, including widening the bridge that crosses I-94. At the completion of the project, motorists will increase from two to three lanes of traffic in each direction, with a center turning lane.  An on-ramp will also be added for motorists traveling on northbound 25th Street South to merge on to eastbound I-94 without crossing traffic.
