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 appeared 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 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 2020 project will take place in three 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 three 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.

Construction will begin in May of 2020 and will continue throughout the summer, with substantial completion scheduled for the end of August.


The projects will be funded with 50% City Funds & 50% Special Assessments to benefiting properties within each of the three areas.

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 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.
