Sheyenne Street Segment 3 - 32nd to 40th Ave.

About Project

The purpose of the proposed street improvement project is to widen Sheyenne Street from 32nd Avenue to 40th Avenue to address capacity needs, roadway reliability and social and economic development along the proposed corridor. The need for the proposed project is warranted by increasing motorist delay; congestion from development along the corridor; crash susceptibility issues; and lack of multimodal opportunities. 

Current and projected needs within this corridor include increasing capacity, addressing social demands, accommodating economic development and improving roadway reliability.

The project will involve the construction of improvements on Sheyenne Street consisting of a 4-lane concrete roadway with curb and gutter from 32nd Avenue to 40th Avenue, sidewalks, multi-use path, storm sewer, sanitary sewer force main relocation, sewer and water extensions, traffic signals, street lighting and other miscellaneous installations.

  • Road closure of Sheyenne Street from the south edge of 32nd Avenue to south of 40th Avenue.
  • Intersection of 38th Avenue W. and Sheyenne Street closed

  • Intersection of 40th Avenue W. and Sheyenne Street closed to all traffic
    • Due to the additional time and significant costs involved, the 40th Avenue W. and Sheyenne Street intersection will close. This closure follows the original construction plans for the project to ensure that work was both efficient and cost effective, while maintaining safety for all using and working in the corridor. The intersection is set to reopen Saturday, June 15. 
    • The intersection will remain open for pedestrians and bicycle access during the road closure.

Upcoming Work

  • Underground work
  • South end roadway preparation
