The 13th Avenue reconstruction project is scheduled for 2018. This project will improve 13th Avenue from 17th Street E to 12th Street E by installing a new 4-lane divided concrete roadway, including curb and gutter, sidewalks, multi-use paths, sanitary sewer, water main, storm sewer, traffic signals, landscaping, street lighting and other miscellaneous installations. The City of Fargo will also be reconstructing 13th Avenue from the City of West Fargo border to 45th Street S.
The City of West Fargo project is estimated to cost $7.35 million, which will be funded through special assessments distributed through an improvement district.
The total special assessment for a single-family residential property owner with less than 2 acres in the improvement district is estimated to be $3,500-4,650*, and a 1 acre commercial or multifamily property is estimated to be $15,000-20,000*. This balance can be paid in full, or over a 25-year term with interest.
