25th Street S Reconstruction & Railroad Crossing
Zone: SouthWhat zone am I?
Project Start: July 5, 2017
Estimated Completion: August 2017
This project will replace deteriorating pavement, sidewalks and the surface of a railroad crossing on 25th Street S, between Main Avenue and 2nd Avenue S. The complete reconstruction project will not impact traffic on Main Avenue; all work is south of the Main Avenue/25th Street intersection.
Main Ave. was reconstructed in 2004 and 25th Street south of 2nd Avenue was reconstructed in 1996, but the stretch between Main and 2nd St. S has not been updated since its construction in 1982.
All lanes through this stretch of 25th Street S are closed and traffic is detoured west around the work zone.
Construction began July 5th. All work should be completed by fall.
The estimated cost for this project is $800,000 and will be paid for by:
- Special Assessments
- Federal Highway Funds
Because 25th Street is classified as an arterial roadway, it has a special assessment district including properties that fall within its boundaries. These properties are located between Main Avenue and 5th Avenue S and from 21st Street to I-29. Fargoparcels.com is a good resource to view the current estimates for your property. Special assessments are payable over 25 years with interest and applied the year after the project is complete.
In addition to the informational meeting scheduled before the projects begin, all project background and updates will be available on FargoStreets.com, where you can sign up for project email notifications.
