12th Avenue North - 45th Street to County Road 19

Project Summary:

Project Type:
Urban Reconstruction

City of Fargo, City of West Fargo


The 12th Avenue North corridor from 45th Street to County Road 19 was previously a two-lane rural roadway with a high number of direct access points and a high percentage of heavy truck traffic. Within the project limits, the roadway fell under three different jurisdictions (City of West Fargo, City of Fargo, and Cass County). The Apex/Benesch team was selected to complete the entire project from the planning elements all the way through to final design and bid plans. Construction started in 2016 and completed in 2017.

Project Details:

The project included reconstructing 2.6 miles of 12th Avenue North to a concrete 3-lane urban section with curb and gutter, sidewalk, shared-use path, storm sewer and city utility improvements. A new roundabout was constructed at the 9th Street intersection. The project included significant public involvement and local stakeholder involvement. It also included a comprehensive communication process with business and landowners. Public meetings and numerous individual meetings were held by Apex to ensure communication and receive feedback from affected stakeholders.
