US 10 is a US Highway in the US state of North Dakota. The road forms a short east-west route through the Fargo urban area in the east of the state. The road is 13 kilometers long.

Travel directions

On the west side of West Fargo, US 10 joins Interstate 94, then continues as a 2×2 lane Main Avenue through West Fargo, then through the city of Fargo itself. Fargo is North Dakota’s largest city with a population of 93,000. It connects to Interstate 29, the highway from Sioux Falls to Winnipeg. Near the center of Fargo, the road crosses the Red River, which also forms the border with Minnesota. US 10 in Minnesota then continues through Moorhead to Detroit Lakes.

History

US 10 originally started much further west in Seattle. With the completion of Interstate 94, the route west of Fargo has been scrapped. In 1925, the 7.5-mile section between Bismarck and Mandan was North Dakota’s first stretch of tarred road (outside the city).

US 81 is a US Highway in the US state of North Dakota. The road forms a north-south route in the east of the state, from the border with North Dakota through Fargo and Grand Forks to the border with the Canadian province of Manitoba at Pembina. The route is double -numbered with Interstate 29 from South Dakota past Grand Forks. The route is 396 kilometers long.

Travel directions

see Interstate 29 in North Dakota for the main topic.

After 150 miles in North Dakota, US 81 exits from I-29 and parallels about 10 miles west of the highway. The road mainly serves villages along the various tributaries of the Red River and the town of Grafton. After about 100 kilometers, US 81 rejoins I-29 and is then double-numbered until the border with Canada at Pembina.

History

US 81 was created in 1926 and was a route from the border with Mexico to the border with Canada from the beginning. Most of US 81 has been replaced in North Dakota by the construction of Interstate 29. Already in 1959 the northernmost part of this opened at the border with Canada. I-29 between Fargo and Manvel was completed circa 1973, and in 1974 – 1977 the southernmost section between the South Dakota and Fargo border opened. Partly because of this, the US 81 did not have a continuous function for long.

Traffic intensities

The parallel section of US 81 has a descending order of 1,650 to 300 vehicles per day, and is therefore very quiet.
