Traffic to shift on State Street in Bismarck
Beginning early next week, the southbound traffic on State Street (from the south ramps of Exit 159 to Calgary Avenue ) in Bismarck will be reduced to the two outside lanes, reducing the driving lanes to a 12 foot width restriction through the work zone. The center lane will be closed to allow for construction crews to work. The closure will be done in two phases, closing only half of a block at a time to help traffic flow.
It is expected work in the northbound lane will be switched to the center lane later next week.
Also, traffic lanes on both sides of State Street at the intersections of Interstate Ave, Century Ave, Weiss Ave, Harvest Lane and Calgary Ave are now open, with some sealing work being done at night.
All work on the project is now operating during nighttime hours to ease the impacts to traffic. Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds and use caution when traveling through the work zone. The project is expected to be complete by late September.
