Funding:

This project will be funded through a combination of Sales Tax Funds, Waste Water Utility Funds, and Special Assessments.


Purpose:

  • This stretch of roadway has aging pavement and underground utilities that have been subject to numerous unscheduled repairs through the years.
  • The project will include up-sizing the water main on 7th Avenue North to 16" diameter pipe between 4th Street to Broadway. The up-sized pipe, in conjunction with various water tower upgrades, is a critical component in providing north Fargo with a reliable water supply.
