Sheyenne Street Reconstruction
About this Project
The two-year Sheyenne Street corridor reconstruction project began in 2018 and eases congestion and safety concerns in West Fargo by adding lanes to Sheyenne Street from 13th to 40th Avenues W. and reconstructing the I-94 Sheyenne Street interchange. The City of West Fargo oversaw the project from 13th Avenue W. to 40th Avenue W and the North Dakota Department of Transportation (ND DOT) is oversaw the interchange reconstruction.
This project was completed in three segments:
- Construction Year: 2018
- Estimated Construction Cost: $8.3 million
- Proposed Improvement: Five-lane section that includes two lanes in each direction and a center left turn lane.
- Construction Year: 2018 and 2019
- Estimated Construction Cost: $23.9 million
- Proposed Improvement: Six-lane section with a raised median and offset left turn-lanes and a new bridge over the Sheyenne Diversion.
- Construction Schedule: 2019
- Estimated Construction Cost: $15.3 million
- Proposed Improvements: Four-lane section with a raised median and offset left-turn lanes.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation (ND DOT) reconstructed the I-94/Sheyenne Street interchange in 2018 and 2019. For more information, visit the ND DOT website.
The City of West Fargo portion of the project is estimated to cost $47.5 million. The ND DOT has provided $11 million to help fund segments 2 and 3, and the local share will be funded through special assessments distributed through the improvement district.
The total special assessment for a property owner with less than 2 acres in the improvement district is estimated to be $2,500-3,500. This balance can be paid in full, or over a 25-year term. If paid over a 25-year term, with interest the approximate annual payment is $300.
