FM Area Diversion construction necessitates I-29 northbound lane closure

FARGO, N.D. – An approximately one-mile stretch of the northbound passing lane (left lane) of I-29 is closed near Argusville, North Dakota. This closure, from just after mile marker 75 to about halfway past mile marker 76, is necessary for the construction of the FM Area Diversion project’s I-29 bypass.

The lane closure is expected to be in effect through October 2023 and will start with the passing lane but shift between the passing and driving lane based on construction needs. Lane closures, traffic changes and speed limits will be clearly marked for motorists.  

During work, speeds will be reduced to 45 mph in the project area, and lane width will be reduced to 13-feet-wide.
