2 + 1 Conversion Project

1st Avenue North & NP Avenue North 

Phase 1: Traffic Signal Installation

Completed 
During Phase 1, there will be minor lane closures between University Drive and 2nd Street North on the south side of 1st Avenue North and the north side of NP Avenue. Two lanes of traffic will always remain open during this phase while crews complete traffic signal installation and lane widening.

Phase 2: Broadway and NP Avenue

Completed
The entire Broadway and NP Avenue intersection will be closed to complete brick installation and minor
repair work. The intersection will be closed for a maximum of 30 days. Through traffic on NP Avenue will be detoured north on the Roberts Street outlet, east on 1st Avenue North, south on 5th Street North, and east on NP Avenue. Southbound through traffic on Broadway will be detoured east on 1st Avenue North, south on 5th Street North, east on NP Avenue, south on
4th Street North, and west on Main Avenue. Motorists on Main Avenue are encouraged to take 4th Street North to access Downtown Fargo.
Roberts Street between 1st Avenue North and NP Avenue is accessible for both north- and south-bound traffic only on the curved outlet. Roberts Street will be closed to traffic between the Fargo Fire Department and Ole Tangen Triangle Park. Traffic will need to utilize the curved outlet on Roberts Street during this time.
After this phase, NP Avenue from University to 2nd Street North will be a two-way street.
