Downtown Fargo

Broadway Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Zone

The City of Fargo has designated the downtown section of Broadway as a Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Zone. The zone includes Broadway’s street and sidewalks and extends from 6th Avenue North to NP Avenue.

Bicyclists should:

  • Ride on the street and obey rules of the road for vehicles.
  • Use appropriate hand signals for turning and stopping.
  • Ride close to the center lane to maximize visibility.
  • Wear a helmet.

Bicycles are allowed on any other street or sidewalk outside of the Broadway Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Zone. Please be courteous to pedestrians, walk your bike across the crosswalks, and watch out for turning vehicles.

Motorists should:

  • Allow bicyclists to integrate into traffic.
  • Drive carefully and watch for pedestrians, bicyclists, and vehicles backing out of parking spaces.

On sidewalks:

  • Bicyclists must walk their bikes in the Bicycle/Pedestrian Safety Zone and obey rules for pedestrians.
  • Cross streets only at crosswalks.
  • Obey traffic signals.
