Mill & Overlay Project 2017


Zone: North, SouthWhat zone am I?

Completed

Start: May 2017

Estimated Completion: Fall 2017

Project Overview:

This project is part of the city’s annual infrastructure improvement efforts and impacts multiple areas of Fargo each construction season. Milling and overlaying existing pavement corrects surface deficiencies that have developed over time, in order to provide a better riding street section with improved drainage. It is a preventative maintenance project that serves as a cost effective way to extend the life of pavement, saving the city and its residents time, money and resources.

Impacts:

Traffic will be maintained during construction, but some lanes may be closed at times or parking temporarily reduced for work being done. This work will be performed on streets and avenues in various areas of the city. Most of this year’s work is contained to the area bounded by I-94, University Drive, 32nd Avenue S and 25th Street. There is also a small portion between 10th Street N, 36th Avenue N and Royal Oaks Drive N, and along 15th Avenue S between 42nd Street to 45th Street.

Timeline:

Construction began this spring and will continue throughout the season, when contractors can fit work into their schedules with other projects. All mill and overlay improvements should be complete by fall.

Project contractors are currently working on Section 1 and expect to get all concrete work done in this area in the next two weeks.

Purpose:

The above named streets and avenues are in need of rehabilitation. A mill and overlay will provide a new wearing surface as well as correct deficiencies which have appeared over time. The project also improves drainage and safety in the area. Rehabilitation results in long-term cost savings for Fargo and its residents.

Funding:

The estimated cost for this year’s work is $3.6 million. Half of this project is funded by the city and half is assessed to the adjacent properties.
