Traffic will be moved from a temporary detour to adjacent newly paved lanes on ND Highway 23 in Watford City at the intersection of ND Highway 23 and ND Highway 1806 beginning Tuesday, October 21.

Traffic remains head to head so crews can continue paving work in the area. This work is part of the Watford City Southeast Bypass project.

During construction:

  • Traffic is head to head
  • Speeds are reduced to 25 mph, with speeds reduced to 15 mph in some areas
  • Motorists should expect delays
  • Flaggers will be in place as needed
  • A 12-foot width restriction is in place

The lane restriction will be removed in late October.
