'Zipper merge' helps traffic flow
Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction as construction on the Bismarck Expressway and I-94 in Bismarck-Mandan has begun and will continue into late fall 2019.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation encourages use of the zipper merge technique to increase traffic efficiency in work zones. Motorists should use both lanes until the point of lane reduction, then take turns, left-right, merging into one lane like the teeth of a zipper.
