Moorhead

Project details

Proposed Hwy 29 overpass location
Proposed 11th Street underpass

The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the City of Moorhead are currently partnering on the layout and environmental documentation phase of an underpass project. The project includes two grade separations of Highway 10/75 under the BNSF rail lines, paving, pedestrian accessibility (ADA) improvements, utility replacements and signals. Moorhead is bisected by multiple rail lines and this project provides many safety and mobility benefits by removing crossing blockages caused by heavy rail traffic.

Key project elements

  • Two underpasses of the BNSF Prosper and BNSF KO Subdivisions
  • Utility replacement
  • Sidewalk improvements
  • Bicycle & ADA accessibility upgrades

Project impacts

  • Additional right of way for construction
  • Construction impacts (detours, closures & delays)
  • Environmental and business impacts
