Traffic to shift on the US 83 West Bypass near Minot Monday



Construction is underway on the US 83 West Bypass near Minot. Beginning Monday, May 7, the southbound roadway on the West Bypass will be reduced to one lane from the Souris River Bridge to US 2. Also the left and right turn traffic will share one lane. Also beginning Tuesday May 8, the west bound right lane and right turn lane of US 2 will be temporarily closed for approximately two weeks but traffic will still have access to the US 83 West Bypass. 


The project consists of paving the southbound roadway and replacing the northbound bridge over the Souris River.

 

During construction:


  • Left and right turn traffic will share one lane for the next few weeks

  • West bound right lane and right turn-lane of US 2 will be temporarily closed

  • Speeds will be reduced

  • Flaggers will be present

  • A width restriction of 12 ft. will be in place during this phase of the project

The entire project is expected to be completed this fall.
