(Fargo, ND) -- Construction will be happening across multiple counties this summer, but mostly away from urban areas, says a source familiar with this year's plans.

NDDOT Assistant District Engineer Joe Peyerl says you will see lots of orange on rural roadways and on I-94, especially between Mapleton and east of Buffalo. He says this does not include a typical urban reconstruction project like most years, largely due to demand. 

"We have over 28 projects that we'll have to do," says Peyerl," That is average or just over average."

Peyerl says some projects will be done in Fargo, like a reconstruction along 32nd ave and another along 52nd ave, but most will be located on I-94. Other projects include various work along I-29, including placing concrete south of Hillsboro and a bridge reconstruction east of Horace, and asphalt placement along county roads in Ransom, Sargent, Cass, and Richland counties.
