Temporary Crossovers on I-94 in Bismarck Removed as Roadwork Nears Completion


As of today, the temporary crossovers on I-94 in Bismarck between mile markers 158 and 159 are removed, putting east- and westbound traffic back in their permanent lanes. While traffic controls, including lane reductions, on both sides of the Interstate will continue to be used as the road construction project continues, this is a significant sign of progress toward completion. Existing traffic on the Grant Marsh Bridge over the Missouri River will remain in place at this time, with traffic reduced to one lane in each direction.


The entire construction project is on track to be completed in late fall.


About the I-94 Bis-Man Project:




  • The construction zone spans from just east of Exit 161 (Bismarck Expressway) to the west side of the Grant Marsh Bridge over the Missouri River, which is approximately 5 miles.
  • I-94 will continue to be open to east and westbound traffic throughout the construction project, utilizing a combination of lane closures and head-to-head traffic.
  • Twelve-foot width restrictions remain in place.
  • Speeds are reduced to 45 mph. Speeds may be reduced even further at times throughout the construction zone.
  • Vehicles are encouraged to use the zipper merge technique to enter sections of lane reductions in this project. To zipper merge, use both open lanes until the orange cones direct traffic into a single lane. At that point, vehicles should take turns alternating into the lane reduction to move more traffic more efficiently through the construction zone.


Regular updates on construction progress will be provided to the public throughout the construction project.
