Moving along: 12th Avenue now open
A $15 million reconstruction of 12th Avenue North and addition of a $300,000 roundabout.at Ninth Street intersection is now open to traffic.
The Ninth Street and 12th Avenue North roundabout was opened on Friday, Nov. 17.
West Fargo Public Works Director Chris Brungardt said the intersection needed more than a stop sign after several fatal accidents happened there over the years.
"It didn't qualify for a stoplight so we had to go with the roundabout," Brungardt said. "We had to do something there, all the businesses had been asking us for it."
Brungardt said the project, which included reconstruction of 12th Avenue from the Sheyenne Diversion to 45th Street, cost was shared with the city of Fargo and Cass County.
West Fargo will partner with Fargo to reconstruction 13th Avenue from 45th Street in Fargo to Ninth Street in West Fargo in 2018.
