Overall Map

Project Overview:

The mill & overlay program is part of the City's annual infrastructure improvement efforts and impacts multiple areas of Fargo each construction season. The purpose of the program is to correct roadway deficiencies which have developed over time.

As part of this project, the Contractor will be mudjacking sections of the curb and gutter in an effort to alleviate major drainage problems. This process involves coring small holes through the curb and gutter section (and driveway apron when necessary) and injecting grout through the holes to raise the gutter to the desired grade.

The Contractor will replace areas of broken up pavement, as well as a limited amount of curb & gutter. Select sections of sidewalk will also be updated to meet the current standards set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act. The 2021 project will take place in five different areas.


Traffic will be maintained during construction, but short-term lane closures, parking restrictions, and sidewalk closures are required to safely accommodate construction activity.

On this project we do not dig up the entire road as we are working on just the top few inches of the road surface. Most of the time a homeowner will be able to use the driveway to their home. However, there will be times where a section has to be closed in order to fix or pave the road.

Construction activity will be performed in five separate areas of the City. To view the affected areas, please refer to the Overall Project Map via the Project Resources section on the right side of this page.


Border States Paving


Construction began in the spring of 2021 and achieved substantial completion in late summer.


This project will be funded with 50% Street Sales Tax Funds & 50% Special Assessments to benefiting properties.

Fargo Parcels is a good resource for viewing the current estimated special assessments for your property. Property owners will receive an estimate for their property, and the estimate will change once the project is bid and completed. Special Assessments are payable over 15 years with interest applied.


This project is needed to correct deficiencies in the asphalt roadways that have appeared over time. Most of the roads within the project have not had any structural work done to them for 20 years or more. By performing the mill and overlay at this time we can extend the life of the roads while achieving a smoother riding surface with improved drainage.
