NP Avenue to reopen as two-way road Friday, 1st Ave. N. phase begins July 22FARGO – NP Avenue will officially be a two-way street on Friday.
The junction of NP and Broadway, which closed at the beginning of June for brick repair, will also reopen Friday, the city said in a news release.
The middle and south lanes of NP will carry eastbound traffic, while the north lane will have westbound traffic. Street parking will be available where applicable in the direction of traffic flow.
First Avenue North will also be converted to a two-way road later this summer. That phase of the project begins July 22. At that time, the intersection of Broadway and First Avenue North will close up to 30 days for brick repair.
City officials encouraged pedestrians to look both ways and drivers to take it slow as they “familiarize themselves with the new traffic pattern on NP Avenue,” Kristy Schmidt, a civil engineer for the city, said in the news release.
