Zone: DowntownWhat zone am I?
Start: July 2016
Estimated Completion: November 2018
The City of Fargo is building a new City Hall and construction started in August. The construction currently impacts some Fargo streets and closes others permanently. For more information on the construction project, visit the New City Hall web page.
The City has demolished the old Centennial Hall downtown and broke ground for the new City Hall building in August 2016. Currently parking is restricted along 3rd Avenue east of 4th Street North. 3rd Street North is completely closed between 1st Avenue North and 3rd Avenue North, so visitors must access City Hall and the Library via 4th Street North.
The current City Hall was built in the 1960s and has reached the end of its useful life. The roof leaks and the building has poor heating, falling ceilings and an inefficient layout for employees and departments that collaborate. Plans for the new area also include a civic plaza that will connect Broadway to the riverfront via 2nd Avenue North.
Downtown Fargo between 2nd Street North and 4th Street North, and 1st Avenue North and 3rd Avenue North. The new building will be located at the north end of the current Civic Center parking lot.
Demolition of Centennial Hall is completed; construction of City Hall began in August 2016 and should finish in fall 2018.
