I-94 Corridor Study

Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota

The goal of the I-94 Corridor Study was to identify and address current and future transportation issues along approximately 17 miles of I-94 from ND Highway 25 in Mandan to 80th Street NE in Bismarck and its crossing roadways. The study came about due to increasing traffic volumes along this stretch of roadway.
Study activities included:

  • Assessing existing conditions.
  • Forecasting 2040 traffic conditions.
  • Developing a purpose and need statement and vision for the study area.
  • Developing planning level alternatives.
  • Evaluating the planning level alternatives.
  • Recommending alternatives.

One of the cornerstones of the study was the public engagement efforts. A series of three public open houses were used to gather input that was essential to the future of the I-94 corridor. The project was also presented to the local governing bodies for acceptance by their respective councils/commissions. In addition, a website and Facebook page were used to provide information about the study and upcoming events throughout the project. At the conclusion of the study, SRF provided a series of recommendations for improvements to I-94 and its interchanges/cross streets.
