Project details

Rendering of the 11th Street underpass
Proposed 11th Street underpass

The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the City of Moorhead have partnered to construct an underpass at 11th Street in Moorhead. The project includes two grade separations of 11th Street under the BNSF rail lines, paving, pedestrian accessibility (ADA) improvements, utility replacements and signals. Moorhead is bisected by multiple rail lines and this project provides many safety and mobility benefits by removing crossing blockages caused by heavy rail traffic.

When completed, the 11th Street Grade Separation project will enable traffic, bicyclists and pedestrians to travel under the rail lines that go through town. 

Key project elements

  • Two underpasses of the BNSF Prosper and BNSF KO Subdivisions
  • Utility replacement
  • Sidewalk improvements
  • Bicycle & ADA accessibility upgrades
