Current Status:

The 2018 Mill and Overlay project began on Tuesday, May 29th, 2018 and is now substantially complete.

Project Overview:

This project is part of the City's annual infrastructure improvement efforts and impacts multiple areas of Fargo each construction season. The purpose of the project is to correct deficiencies on the roadways which have appeared over time.

As part of the 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 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 2018 project will take place in four 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.

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


Border States Paving


Construction will begin in May of 2018 and will continue throughout the summer and fall, with completion scheduled for the first part of October.


This project will be funded with 50% City Funds & 50% Special Assessments to benefiting properties within each of the four sections.

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. 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 on the asphalt roadways that have appeared over time. Most of the roads in this 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.
