Project Overview: Purpose & Need
The freeway in this area is built on two long bridges, which are both getting old.
Regular, costly repairs and the extended years they’ve been in service requires NDOT to find a solution.
Crash rates in this corridor are nearly 20% higher than the statewide average.
2040 Projected Operations: many segments will operate at less than 10 mph if nothing is done.
Closely Spaced Ramps:
Ramps through downtown are spaced very close together, creating slowing conditions that back up traffic for several miles in each direction.
