4th Street South Fully Open to Traffic


This week crews reopened all residential blocks on 4th Street South between 2nd Street South to 13th Avenue South to traffic. All intersections have been restored to two driving lanes from a single driving lane and driveways are accessible from 4th Street S throughout the entire project area.

Over the next few weeks, crews will continue to be working through the area on street signage and complete the installation of a crosswalk traffic signal at 8th Avenue South. This work is anticipated to have minimal traffic impacts. With crews still working in the area, drivers are encouraged to slow down and pay attention.

Through the area, existing street lighting is operational or temporary lighting has been installed and seasonal on-street parking is now in effect.

With the cooler temperatures, the project will enter winter suspension and crews will complete the following under traffic with intermittent lanes closures and street detours next year:

  • Widen and seal four blocks of 4th Street S
  • Install permanent pavement markings
  • Install permanent street lighting
  • Seeding to all disturbed grass

Since mid-May, contractors have been working on a large full roadway reconstruction and water main improvement project to upgrade portions of the City of Fargo’s infrastructure in this area including water main, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, pavement, curb and gutter, street lighting and the traffic signal located at the intersection of 4th Street S and 8th Avenue S.

In addition, driveway approaches and sidewalks on 4th Street S were replaced. The roadway on 4th Street South was reconfigured to accommodate bicycle lanes along the curbs.
