Center Avenue Watermain Replacement Project Scheduled to Begin Monday, April 29

Moorhead Public Service (MPS) expects to begin the Center Avenue Watermain Replacement Project on Monday, April 29, 2019. The watermain replacement project will occur on Center Avenue, between 4th Street and 8th Street, and will replace aged 1950s cast iron watermain with new PVC watermain.

 

Center Avenue bridge repairs are also planned to begin soon and will be coordinated with MPS’ watermain project. As the watermain project begins, there will be lane closures on Center Avenue, although east-west traffic between 4th Street and 8th Street will remain open during the majority of the project. When the bridge repair project begins (most likely in early to mid-May 2019), traffic between Moorhead and Fargo will be directed to use the 1st Avenue North bridge. Both projects are expected to last until mid-July 2019. Neither of these projects will begin until the 1st Avenue North bridge and underpass are re-opened (anticipated Monday, April 29). A delay in re-opening  1st Avenue North, or unexpected weather or conditions, could delay the start of both of these projects.

 

Motorists should take extra precautions and allow extra time when traveling through the Center Avenue corridor between 4th Street and 8th Street.
