I-29 bypass lanes to open, construction continues on FM Area Diversion project

FARGO, N.D. – Construction of bypass lanes and crossings for the FM Area Diversion project has necessitated closures of I-29 lanes near Argusville, ND, in both northbound and southbound lanes, for most of the summer.

As we have seen summer come to a close, so are the lane closures. Both northbound and southbound bypasses will be fully open to two lanes of traffic in each direction by the end of the day Friday, November 3, 2023. Work on crossings for the diversion channel will continue throughout the winter in this area.

We appreciate the public’s patience and understanding as crews work to construct the FM Area Diversion and bring permanent reliable flood protection to nearly 260,000 people in our area.
