According to Bismarck Public Works Department, effective Today, (July 18th), University Drive south of Denver Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction plus the lane width will be restricted to 12-feet. Any oversized loads traveling on University Drive should utilize the detour route of Bismarck Expressway and Airport Road.

This is part of the South 12th Street Storm Water Project and will allow for the connection to the storm water facility in the middle of Bismarck Expressway.

Drivers should use caution in this area or avoid the area and plan for another route. The project should be complete in August.
