The end is in sight for construction on Grand Forks’ 32nd Avenue South.

Repairs on the city’s shopping corridor are set to end on Sept. 27, according to an update from the Public Information Department.

Until then, drivers can expect two more weeks of grinding work on non-asphalt roadway and intersections starting tonight. This work will take place from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Afterward, a microsurface, or thin layer of modified asphalt, will be placed over the road surface, acting as a sealant. The operation is similar to paving but faster, according to the city.

This work also will be done at night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m . and is scheduled to be completed Saturday morning.

Installation of permanent pavement markings will take about one week and will be done during the day following the grinding work. Electric work also will be done in the berm between 20th Street and Washington and at the signals at the Interstate.
