Construction on the Dickinson reliever route is set to begin today. Phase one of the five mile project will begin in the area of I-94 & 113th Avenue SW, just north of the west Dickinson interchange (Exit 59) and will progress north approximately three miles to 33rd Street SW. The route will then continue east along 33rd Street SW for approximately two miles where it will tie into ND Hwy 22.
This project will improve traffic flow by providing a wider, higher capacity roadway through a section of Dickinson. The roadway will be concrete pavement with curb and gutter for the first mile north of I-94 along 113th Avenue SW and will provide turn lanes and additional through lanes for traffic. The remainder of the route will be paved with asphalt and consist of a two lane roadway with a center common turn lane and eight foot paved shoulders.
During construction heavy equipment and workers will be present in the work zone.
• Traffic may be reduced to one lane
• Pilot cars & flaggers will be present
• At time drivers may be driving on a temporary roadway
The Dickinson reliever route project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2014.
Help prevent work zone crashes. Motorists are encouraged to slow down, allow extra distance between their vehicles and the vehicle in front of them, use caution and obey flaggers and posted signs.
