North Washington Street Construction Project

Posted:

Growth can be found in every corner of Bismarck and one road in particular is seeing a lot of traffic.

North Washington Street between Calgary and 57th Avenue is currently just two lanes.

But with new homes and a new school being built in the area, plans are in the works to expand the road.

Tonight the Bismarck City Commission approves the final report for the north Washington reconstruction project.

The plan includes a four lane road with a raised median between Calgary and 57th Avenue.

"I think anyone who lives in this area or drives this road frequently can see the rapid pace of development that's occurring out there and with that development comes the increase in traffic, the current traffic volumes today on north Washington Street are just over 8,000 vehicles per day that number is projected to increase to over 27,500 by year 2040," Troy Ripplinger with KLJ said.

The reconstruction is expected to begin in 2015.
