The project is under construction.

Friday, May 14, 2021

Construction activities for the Fargo – West Fargo Natural Gas Project will begin on May 19, 2021.

  • On 33rd Avenue between Seter Parkway and 45th Street.
    • Crews will begin construction on 33rd Avenue near 49th Street. Crews will be on site before May 19 to prepare for the start of construction.
    • Once construction begins, nearby locations will notice traffic control measures including complete road closures and detours.
      • Closures will take place near the intersections of 33rd Avenue and 47th Street and 33rd Avenue and 49th Street.
    • Nearby locations may also experience temporary changes to access. We will coordinate directly with affected locations.

Future construction activities will occur along:

  • 33rd Avenue,
  • 9th Street,
  • 55th Street,
  • Seter Parkway,
  • And under Interstate 94.

Crews will install natural gas lines by both open trenching and drilling. We will drill under major intersections and Interstate 94 to reduce traffic impacts.

Our construction contractor is Primoris Services Corporation (Q3). Additional contractors may also work on the project.

December 2020

Xcel Energy will have a temporary system in place to increase natural gas supply in the Metro Area. This temporary system is located near 45th Street S. and 54th Avenue S. in Fargo and will increase natural gas supply in the Metro Area on peak customer use days during the 2020/2021 winter heating season. We will use this additional supply of natural gas to continue to provide the safe, reliable natural gas service our customers expect.

The temporary system will include liquefied natural gas tanks, a power generator, concrete barriers and security fencing. We will have the equipment in place through spring 2021. Crews will refill the tanks as this additional supply of natural gas is used. Please note the schedule is subject to change.
