Reduced Lanes on Washington Street, South of Expressway Avenue

Starting at 8:30 AM, Tuesday, June 1, 2021, Washington Street, South of Expressway Ave between Bismarck Expressway and Easy Street will have restricted movements. The restrictions will be for a contractor to replace a water main in the northbound roadway and reconstruction of the roadway. Southbound traffic on Washington Street will be reduced to one lane. Northbound traffic will be reduced to one left turn lane, two through lanes and one right turn lane.


Denver Avenue will be closed to east/west traffic at Washington Street during this time. Access to all local businesses will be maintained. Businesses east of Washington Street and North of Denver Avenue can be accessed from Portland Drive.


Riverwood Drive will be open to east/west traffic. Businesses West of Washington Street and Fox Island boat ramp can be accessed from Riverwood Drive.


This will be an ongoing project with multiple phases. Traffic will be shifted as needed, watch for future news releases and information. 


All truck traffic will be detoured around the construction zone. The truck detour route, for trucks wanting to access the area from the North, will utilize Bismarck Expressway to University Drive/ 9th Street south to 12th Street south to Burleigh Avenue and west back to Washington Street.


Trucks needing to access the area may do so from the South, use Washington Street to Burleigh Avenue east to 12th Street north to University Drive/ 9th Street to Expressway.


Traffic can expect long delays during this project phase. This project will impact traffic movements in this area through early July of 2021.


Traffic should plan ahead and use alternate routes, as major delays are anticipated during peak traffic periods. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
