Why should I attend? Representatives from the City of Fargo, City of West Fargo, Apex Engineering Group, and Flint Group will be available to answer questions about how the different phases of the street reconstruction could possible impact you and how we plan to ease impact to your business and/or access to the area during road construction.

Project plans will be available for your review and will show the following:

  • The road and sidewalk layout
  • Approximate limits of reconstruction
  • Planned construction phasing

We will share the multiple communication channels available to you during planning and active construction that will show changes to 13th Avenue access and travel routes. You will be able to sign-up for many of these during the meeting.

13th Avenue from 45th Street to 12th Street E is being designed now and will be publicly bid in March 2018. Active construction is slated to begin in April 2018.

What is the scope of work and how will it be funded? The purpose of the project is to replace aging infrastructure, with a goal of improving both pedestrian and vehicular safety, and increasing roadway capacity. This project will include the construction of a new 6-lane roadway in Fargo and 3-lane westbound and 2-lane eastbound roadway in West Fargo.

A new concrete roadway, curb and gutter, sidewalks/shared use path, storm sewer, watermain, street lights, and traffic signals will be installed through the project limits.

The project is being funded by a combination of local utility, infrastructure sales tax, and special assessments. A map showing the limits of the assessment district will be available at the meetings.

What is the meeting format? The meeting will not have a formal presentation and will be an open house format. We want you to have the ability to talk one-on-one to City staff and project engineers from Apex Engineering Group, and/or Flint Group representatives with your specific questions.

If I can’t attend the meeting, how can I stay informed? Please contact either Jeremy Gorden, City of Fargo, or Matt Kinsella, Apex Engineering Group, with further questions.
