The City of West Fargo and the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Council of Governments (Metro COG) have partnered to identify and prioritize short-term and long-range planning that is based on the needs and wishes of all stakeholders using Ninth Street from Seventh Avenue E. to 12th Avenue NE. in West Fargo. A series of public input opportunities will launch this week for the community to share any transportation-related challenges and future needs along this corridor.

The first public input meeting for the transportation study is scheduled for 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 13, in the Training Room at the West Fargo City Hall (800 Fourth Ave. E.). Attendees can be entered to win one of four $25 gift cards from Family Fare Supermarket and Casey’s General Store at the meeting by completing the corridor survey. Winners will be selected Friday, June 14. 

The transportation study will evaluate alternatives for cars, bicycles, pedestrians, freight and transit travel throughout the Ninth Street corridor. 

The Ninth Street corridor in the study area is broken into two very distinct roadways, separated by Main Avenue. 

  • South of Main Avenue, Ninth Street is a three-lane urban roadway surrounded by residential and institutional development including West Fargo City Hall, Police Department and West Fargo High School. 
  • North of Main Avenue, Ninth Street is a two-lane rural roadway surrounded by industrial and agricultural properties. The City of West Fargo has also designated this as part of its truck route network. Metro Area Transit (MATBUS) serves a portion of this section of the corridor with its Route 20. 

Neighborhoods adjacent to or near the corridor include Main Avenue, East Main, Brookwood, Berger, Sommerset, Meyer and North Industrial Park. 

Members of the public who cannot attend this meeting can also supply comments and questions via email to Brent.Muscha@apexenggroup.com (subject, “Public Meeting”), or mail comments to the project team at:
