Highway crews kicked off a road construction project Wednesday along Interstate 29 south of Hillsboro.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation announced that the reconstruction project will include grading, paving, structural replacement and fencing along I-29 between exits 92 and 100.

Crews were detouring northbound traffic into the southbound lanes and transportation officials said travel will be restricted to one lane of travel during the course of the project.

Speed limits have been reduced to 65 miles per hour through the work zone.

A width restriction of 15 feet has been added for northbound traffic. Travelers headed south will have a road width restriction of 20 feet.

The Grandin and Blanchard I-29 interchanges and southbound Elm River rest area will remain open during construction, according to NDDOT officials.

However, the northbound Elm River rest area will be closed for the duration of the project.
