South Washington Street improvements going smoothly, may take less time than first thought
Electrical work on new stop lights on South Washington Street is going smoothly and road closures may take less time than first thought.
Construction crews are in the process of converting four intersections from existing traffic signals to newly installed signals.
The first was Monday on 28th Avenue.
Campbell Avenue's work is set for next Monday, which is the intersection in front of the K-Mart.
The work requires the entire intersection to be shut down.
Traffic is asked to avoid the area or expect to take detours along the frontage roads.
Grand Forks Principal Engineer Mike Yavarow said, "The schedule might be hastened a little bit. They were talking about one every Monday. But because things have gone so so far they might be accelerating that a little bit."
Construction on South Washington is expected to be complete by the end of August
