Current Status:

  • North Side Project (Updated August 14th, 2019): Work in Section One is complete. In Section Two, the Contractor will be paving south of 22nd Ave N beginning Friday, August 16th. All work south of 22nd Ave is scheduled to be completed by August 20th. Paving operations will begin as early as Saturday, August 17th north of 28th Ave N. Completion of all construction activity north of 28th Ave is also scheduled for August 20th (for Section details, please refer to the Overall Map in the Project Resources section of this page). Minimal disruption is expected during this phase of construction. However, some of the curb & gutter replacement will restrict access to driveways. In such cases, the Contractor will be attempting to notify the affected property owners of the impact and duration of the access restrictions. Once the concrete work is completed, asphalt mill and overlay work will begin. This work will cause minimal delays along with parking restrictions. Flaggers will be present to direct traffic, and No Parking signs will be placed along affected streets one to two days in advance of the mill & overlay work. Please do not park in these areas between the hours of 6:30 AM and 8:00 PM in order for the Contractor to perform their work as safely, quickly, and efficiently as possible.
  • South Side Project (Updated August 14th, 2019): The Contractor is currently performing removal and replacement of curb & gutter in Section Seven and milling in Sections Four, Five, and Six. The Contractor currently plans to complete Section Seven's curb & gutter work and paving operations in Sections Four, Five, and Six next week (for Section details, please refer to the Overall Map in the Project Resources section of this page). Minimal disruption is expected during this phase of construction. However, some of the curb & gutter replacement will restrict access to driveways. In such cases, the Contractor will be attempting to notify the affected property owners of the impact and duration of the access restrictions. Once the concrete work is completed, asphalt mill and overlay work will begin. This work will cause minimal delays along with parking restrictions. Flaggers will be present to direct traffic, and No Parking signs will be placed along affected streets one to two days in advance of the mill & overlay work. Please do not park in these areas between the hours of 6:30 AM and 8:00 PM in order for the Contractor to perform their work as safely, quickly, and efficiently as possible.

Project Overview:

The mill & overlay program is part of the City's annual infrastructure improvement efforts and impacts multiple areas of Fargo each construction season. The purpose of these projects is to correct roadway deficiencies which have appeared over time.

As part of these projects, the Contractor will be mudjacking sections of the curb and gutter in an effort to alleviate major drainage problems. This process involves coring small holes through the curb and gutter section (and driveway apron when necessary) and injecting grout through holes to raise the gutter to the desired grade.

The Contractor will replace areas of broken up pavement, as well as a limited amount of curb & gutter. Select sections of sidewalk will also be updated to meet the current standards set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The 2019 projects will take place in ten different areas.


Impacts:

Traffic will be maintained during construction, but short-term lane closures, parking restrictions, and sidewalk closures are required to safely accommodate construction activity.

Construction activity will be performed in ten separate areas of the City. To view the affected areas, please refer to the Overall Project Maps via the Project Resources section on the right side of this page.


Contractor:

  • South Side Project: FM Asphalt
  • North Side Project: Northern Improvement

Timeline:

  • South Side Project: Construction will begin in May of 2019 and will continue throughout the summer, with substantial completion scheduled for the end of August.
  • North Side Project: Construction will begin in May of 2019 and will continue throughout the summer, with substantial completion scheduled for the middle of September.

Funding:

The projects will be funded with 50% City Funds & 50% Special Assessments to benefiting properties within each of the ten areas.

Fargo Parcels is a good resource for viewing the current estimated special assessments for your property. Property owners will receive an estimate for their property. The estimate will change once the project is bid and completed. Special Assessments are payable over 15 years with interest applied.


Purpose:

These projects are needed to correct deficiencies on the asphalt roadways that have appeared over time. Most of the roads within these projects have not had any structural work done to them for 20 years or more. By performing the mill and overlay at this time we can extend the life of the roads while achieving a smoother riding surface with improved drainage.
