Columbia Road Project construction begins next week, with lane closures planned for the week of 5/10. Construction Crews plan to close the eastern most lanes of Columbia Road next week to begin the reconstruction project. Traffic will be shifted to the western most lanes with one lane open in each direction. The intersection of University and Columbia Road will be closed to vehicles passing through Columbia Road on University Ave. in the east-west direction. Please follow detour signage.
The phase 1 (reconstruct eastern lanes) detour plan is above, showing the work zone limits. 2nd Ave will remain open on campus and with the ability for south bound Columbia Road traffic to enter campus (right in) and east bound traffic on 2nd Ave to exit campus only by turning right (right out) on Columbia Road and heading south.
During the week of 5/17, the Columbia Road underpass will be closed for reconstruction. All pedestrians will need to use the UND Parking Ramp skyway to cross Columbia Road to access campus from the parking lot on the east side of Columbia Road.
