Land closures on South Washington beginning next week

GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - Yet another headache to add your daily route.

Starting Monday, crews will be adding right turn lanes at the intersections 40th Avenue South and 44th Avenue South on South Washington.

Southbound traffic between these 2 areas will be down to one lane.

Drivers say they aren't thrilled about more construction, but agree it had to be done.

"It's gonna be hard, there's a lot of traffic on that road every day,” said resident Terry Lappegaard. “I suppose it'll make it better traffic when they get done with it, as far as accessibility and speed for traffic will be better."

The project is expected to last about a month, weather permitting.
