After closing over six months ago for construction, North 42nd Street in Grand Forks is once again fully functional.

The street will reopen at 9 a.m. Thursday, according to a video from the City of Grand Forks. The video, posted on the city’s Facebook page, shows Mayor Mike Brown pulling orange traffic barrels and barricades off the roadway and ends with the mayor dancing to “Chelsea Dagger,” a staple of UND hockey games.

The street closed from University Avenue to Gateway Drive in May so it could be repaved and have sewer lines and a shared-use path added on the west side of the street.

The street partially opened in August. It was initially slated to finish in October, though several weather delays pushed the deadline into November. The street was under construction for 196 days.
