North Dakota Department of Transportation—I-94 and Sheyenne Street Interchange

The I-94 and Sheyenne Street interchange was originally constructed as a two-lane country road, but with the growth of the community over the years, heavy traffic congestion became a problem. The North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) needed to address that congestion for safety purposes and also accommodate different transportation options. An innovative design was chosen with wider ramp connections that moves traffic through a single traffic light in the middle of the interchange. In addition to the design, transportation options were included by the creation of multiple paths, including a pedestrian underpass. These additions now allow pedestrians to navigate the entire corridor without coming into contact with any traffic, prioritizing safety and improving commutes for all types of travelers.
