Post Date:05/14/2018

Motorists in the Moorhead area will encounter overnight lane closures on several highways the week of May 20.

Crews will complete maintenance work on and near several bridges between 9 pm and 5 am each night.

Affected bridges include:

·        I-94 Red River bridge

·        Highway 10 Veterans Memorial bridge over the Red River

·        Highway 75 bridges over I-94

·        20 Street bridge over I-94

·        Main Avenue Southeast/County Road 52 bridge over I-94

·        34 Street bridge over I-94

·        Highway 336 bridge over I-94

·        Highway 336 bridge over Highway 10

·        I-94 Buffalo River bridges

The maintenance work includes flushing the bridges, which removes sand and other particles that collect on the bridge joints and abutments. Crews also will look for deterioration that may have occurred during the winter and make repairs to the road surface. 

The highways will remain open, but motorists may encounter short delays.

The work is occurring during overnight hours to minimize traffic impacts in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
