4 NDDOT road construction projects to get underway soon
The North Dakota Department of Transportation announced the beginning of three area road construction projects on Friday.
Two projects of the projects will be along Interstate 94.
A project on the interstate one mile east of the Gladstone interchange begins April 16. The project includes removal and replacement of approach slabs, bridge deck overlay and guardrail replacement.
Speeds will be reduced to 35 mph when workers are present and a width restriction of 11 feet will be in place.
The project is expected to be completed in June.
Construction will begin next week on westbound and eastbound I-94, two miles west of the west Medora interchange. The project consists of pavement reconstruction and is expected to be completed in mid-July.
Speeds will be reduced to 35 mph when workers are present and a width restriction of 11½ feet will be in place.
Construction is also expected to begin next week on a separate project on the I-94 business loop, a half-mile west of Medora. The project consists of bridge deck overlay and guardrail replacement. It is expected to be complete in June.
The Highway 22 project north of Killdeer has been delayed by weather after being scheduled to begin Friday.
The eight-mile project, approximately 13 miles north of Killdeer, will include the grading and paving of the highway, adding of passing lanes and widening of shoulders.
Early work will take place off the roadway as a temporary gravel road will be constructed and used to maintain two-way traffic during the project.
Traffic will be moved to the temporary road shortly after it is constructed. The temporary road will have a 25 mph speed limit with pilot cars. Gravel and oil may be present on the temporary road.
The projected is expected to be completed in the summer.
