North Dakota Governor John Hoeven was in West Fargo on Monday afternoon for the ceremony marking the completion of the first phase of Main Avenue reconstruction stretching from 6th Street West to 5th Street East, with all segments of the roadway now officially open to traffic.


The end result is a widened Main Avenue along with easier access to the adjacent businesses, with the elimination of frontage roads and the addition of diagonal parking spaces instead.
