Drivers warned to expect traffic congestion around NDSU this afternoonFARGO – The Fargo Police Department warns drivers to expect congested traffic today around the North Dakota State University campus, where winter commencement ceremonies start at 4 p.m. and the NDSU playoff football game starts at 7 p.m.
Crunch time will be from about 5:20 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Police advise anyone trying to reach the Fargodome to avoid that time frame if possible. Police also ask drivers in north Fargo who aren’t heading to the campus area to avoid 12th and 19th avenues north.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternative roadways – such as 25th Street North, Interstate 29, Cass County Route 20 and 10th Street North – to reach their destination.
