During a special ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday, the City of Dickinson gathered with members from the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) to celebrate the completion of the Interstate 94 East Business Loop project in Dickinson.

The $14.3 million project featured an asphalt overlay and lane widening on the I-94 Business Loop, and the addition of a shared-use path, NDDOT officials stated. Realignment and concrete work were completed at the intersection of 10th Avenue East and the I-94 Business Loop. The project also included a realignment of the access ramps on I-94 and the addition of high mast lighting to improve visibility in the area.

Participating in this special ribbon cutting ceremony were NDDOT Director Bill Panos, Dickinson Mayor Scott Decker and other state and local officials.

“The successful completion of this project brings new features that increase safety and improve traffic flow for the traveling public in Dickinson,” Panos said. “This was a team effort with the project managers, consultants, contractors and the City of Dickinson that will enhance our state transportation system.”

Later in November, the permanent traffic light will be installed, Panos said.
