Project Overview Map


Current Status:

Roberts Alley Project: Crews are active on the north half of the alley working on underground improvements. The south portion of Roberts Alley is busy with traffic and open to all forms of transportation as well as deliveries

Roberts Street Project: Roberts Street is closed between 2nd Avenue North to Roberts Common Parking Ramp to vehicle and street parking. The full road closure on the south portion of Roberts Street will allow crews to begin with roadway removals.This is a continuation of the first phase of the Roberts Street reconstruction and water main improvement project work that started with underground and roadway reconstruction work on 5th Street North.

Currently, the north ½ block section of 5th Street between 2nd Avenue North and 3rd Avenue North is fully closed to drivers and street parking is temporary unavailable. Crews completed the street paving and concrete is curing until it reaches its design strength. Pedestrian access is maintained on the east side next to the building entrances and temporary exit from the bank drive-thru maintained to 2nd Avenue North.


Project Overview:

Roberts Alley Project: Will include a complete roadway reconstruction and underground work. Work will start from behind Atomic Coffee continuing north to 4th Avenue North. The south portion of the alley will be accessible for pedestrian traffic.

Roberts Street Project: Will include work to replace deteriorating 105-year-old water main and 103-year-old roadway on Roberts Street between 2nd Avenue North to 4th Avenue North as well as replace a section of 5th Street North between 2nd and 3rd Avenue North that is an 83-year-old roadway in downtown Fargo.

Impacts:

The Roberts Alley Project: Will close the north portion of the alley found between Broadway North and Roberts Street from 4th Avenue North to behind Atomic Coffee building. There will be no access to the north side of the alley for parking, deliveries or pedestrian traffic during active construction.

The alley will be accessible for pedestrian traffic only on the south portion of the alley, which was improved last year. Access will be from 2nd Avenue North sidewalk.

Roberts Street Project: The first part of initial phase impacts 5th Street North between 2nd Avenue North and 3rd Avenue North. The north ½ block section will completely close to drivers and street parking will be temporary unavailable during the roadway removal and placement of new water main. Pedestrian access will be maintained on the east side next to the building entrances and temporary exit from the bank drive-thru maintained to 2nd Avenue North.

In early July, crews will continue the first phase of work and shift crews to Roberts Street to start the roadway reconstruction and water main improvement working from south to north. The project work will be completed in two phases to maintain access to area buildings and parking ramp.

Timeline:

Roberts Alley: The project began May 14th and is slated to be finished mid-September.
