Fire Station No. 8 and NP Avenue Parking Garage get approval from Fargo City Commission

Fargo, North Dakota – The Fargo City Commission has given the green light for the next phase of awarding construction bids for Fire Station No. 8.

Although the bids received last month exceeded the initial estimate by $59,000, the city’s contingency plans can accommodate the overrun.

The new fire station is slated for construction at the intersection of 33rd Street and 66th Avenue South, in close proximity to the recently completed 64th Avenue South overpass. A groundbreaking ceremony is anticipated to be announced in the near future.

The $8.1 million bond, approved by the city commission last year, will not only fund the construction and equipment for Fire Station No. 8, but also facilitate enhancements at Station No. 2. This station, situated at 25th Street and 30 1/2 Avenue South, was the first city fire station established south of I-94 when it was built in 1987.

In addition to the fire station plans, the commission has also authorized the development of the NP Avenue Parking Garage in the downtown area. The facility will provide approximately 460 parking spaces, with the potential for electric charging stations to be installed in the future.
