Thank you for allowing us to share with you some downtown Fargo construction updates. Good luck, runners!
400 Block of Broadway
As required by the City of Fargo, a fire line is being added to the Lowman Hadeland buildings on the west side of the 400 Block of Broadway. On Monday, May 21, work will begin to tie in the new line to the pipes under Broadway. This work will impact parking in front of Unglued, Boots and Heels, and Insomnia Cookies, but all business on the block will remain open during this time. There will be sidewalk detours to direct shoppers into the stores. The sidewalk is scheduled to reopen by the end of day Friday, June 1. After the new concrete has had time to cure, the sidewalk and brick pavers will be patched back in from May 28 to June 1.
Apartments on Broadway
Work continues on the apartments being constructed on the upper floors of 115-119 Broadway. In the coming weeks, there will be material deliveries impacting parking in front of the buildings from 6 to 8:30 a.m.
The alley behind the Black Building will be closed to through traffic starting Monday, May 21, in order to tie in the building’s new electric service to existing lines. Garbage trucks will be allowed through, and people can continue to enter the building from the alley.
The west sidewalk along Roberts Commons remains closed for the last phase of brick washing. The north half of Roberts Alley is undergoing reconstruction and closed to vehicle traffic. The pedestrian entrance to the garage remains accessible via the alley, as does access to all businesses along the south half of the alley (City of Fargo online construction map).
The City of Fargo will be reconstructing Roberts Street this summer, and will ensure continuous access at all times to the garage. Visit FargoStreets.com to subscribe to receive plans and updates.

Roberts Alley came alive this week with the grand opening celebrations of Scoop N Dough Candy Co. and Pink Luxe Boutique, and an artist reception at Ecce Art Gallery. People of all ages filled the alley and as we shared in the excitement of the new space with the downtown neighborhood, we felt the bar raise on what is possible in Downtown Fargo. Thank you to all who came out to support these great businesses. We invite you to share your alley experiences on social media using #RobertsAlley!
