The beginning of the Bismarck Ash Coulee project occurs on April 24.



Bismarck, North Dakota – The final remnants of winter’s snow are quickly disappearing, and in their place will soon be hundreds of orange cones and the beginning of the construction season.

The large-scale restoration of Ash Coulee Drive is one of the many projects that Bismarck has planned for this year. The work is scheduled to begin on April 24 and continue through October.

The project will be carried out in two stages, with each stage consisting of its own distinct components, such as the renovation of the roadway and the installation of turn lanes, pedestrian facilities, and lighting.

The Ash Coulee Drive corridor from Tyler Parkway to East Valley Drive will be the primary focus of Phase 1.

Once school is out for the summer, workers will shift their attention to the portion of the road that runs from East Valley Drive to North Washington Street as part of Phase 2 of the project. It is anticipated that Phase 2 will be finished in August, and that segment of the roadway will be reopened in plenty of time for the start of the new school year.

During the duration of the construction, the shared-use route that is located on the northern side of Ash Coulee Drive will be inaccessible to pedestrians and cyclists. for the spring and autumn school terms, the pedestrian crossing at Mustang Drive will continue to be accessible to pedestrians; however, it will be out of service for Phase 2 of the project.

Beginning one week in advance of the street closures, digital message boards will be deployed to notify the public in the areas that will be affected by the closures.
