Sheyenne Street segment 3 road closures start April 8

Next week, contractors for the third segment of the City of West Fargo Sheyenne Street project will start the last section of roadway reconstruction planned for the major arterial corridor.

Starting Monday, April 8, after 9 a.m., Sheyenne Street will fully close to drivers from south of 32nd Avenue W. to north of 40th Avenue W., as well as one city block south of 40th Avenue W. intersection. Local residents east of Sheyenne Street will be able to access Windsor Green, West River and Borderud’s developments. At the start of work, the Sheyenne Street and 40th Avenue W. intersection will remain open to one driving lane of east–west traffic on the south half of the intersection. The City of West Fargo is reevaluating the additional costs and time to keep the intersection open to traffic throughout the duration of the project work.

Once Sheyenne Street is closed in segment three, traffic detours or best routes based on your destination will include:

  • 40th Avenue W. west to Ninth St W., north to 32nd Avenue W. and east to Sheyenne St
  • 52nd Avenue W. west to Ninth Street W., north to 40th Avenue W or 32nd Avenue W. to east to Sheyenne Street
  • 40th Avenue W. east to Veterans Boulevard, north to 32nd Avenue W. and west to Sheyenne St
  • Southbound Sheyenne Street, east 52nd Avenue W. to north Veterans Boulevard

City and project staff have been working with the school district to offer driving suggestions for parents using Ninth Street West to access neighborhood schools during peak travel times. This includes using alternative modes of transportation, such as walking, biking or carpooling, to ease traffic congestion during drop-off and pickup times. Temporary traffic signals will be added on Ninth Street W. at the 32nd Avenue W. and 40th Avenue W. intersections to help facilitate the increased traffic.

Motorists in this area should plan for delays and congestion during the morning and evening commutes and adjust their travel plans accordingly. Traffic signals in the area will also be monitored and adjusted during the first two weeks of the closure as traffic patterns adjust to the closure. Drivers in the area are encouraged to consider avoiding traveling during peak hours, and plan for alternate routes.
