Center Ave Project


The City of Moorhead initiated a planning and preliminary engineering study of the Center Ave Corridor from the Red River to 8 St in 2017.  The City has a project programmed to rehabilitate this Corridor in 2019. 

The City previously completed a study of the project corridor cooperatively with Metro COG and MnDOT in 2013.  The 2013 Corridor Study included multiple corridors including Highway 10, Highway 75, and Center Ave.  The 2017-2018 study re-evaluated alternatives included within the 2013 Corridor Study along with some additional alternatives to ensure the corridor is examined with a complete streets approach which studies all modes of transportation, existing and proposed development, the overall safety of the corridor for all users, and options to improve the corridor aesthetics.  An overview of the study process is noted below.
