Broadway bridge

U.S. 83 Broadway Bridge Viaduct Replacement

The project is on schedule to reach substantial completion Nov. 1. Crews will continue to work seven days a week through October. As a reminder, drivers should be aware of changing traffic conditions in the area and drive slowly through the construction zone.

U.S. 83 Bypass

The concrete deck of the new bridge was poured in late September. Work is under way to pave the final sections of roadway on the project. Road work will be completed to finish new turn lanes into the area of the Bark Park and into the Terracita Vallejo subdivision. Head-to-head traffic is now using the two west lanes, and will remain there until the project is completed. The entire project has a scheduled completion date of late October, weather permitting.

Water Treatment Plant expansion

Work continues to form concrete foundations and walls for the additions onto the plant, which are being constructed west of the current building. The $26 million expansion project that will double the daily capacity at Minot’s Water Treatment Plant. The new facility is expected to be operational by late 2019. The project is part of the Northwest Area Water Supply Project, which will provide clean drinking water to many communities in northwest and north central North Dakota. The project is funded between the North Dakota State Water Commission (65%) and the City of Minot (35%).

4th Avenue Floodwalls

Concrete foundations, footings and walls for Broadway Pump Station continue to be poured. The contractor anticipates five to seven more weeks of work along 4th Avenue and in other areas before winter closure.

North Hill water tank

The contractor is behind schedule in finishing this project. The new 1.5 million tank is now expected to be in use by the end of November. The new tank will provide required fire flows for Erik Ramstad Middle School as well as storage for future expansion and fire flow demands. Cost of this project is $3,336,000.

Upsizing sanitary sewer lines at lagoon

The majority of the new pipe has been installed, and crews are working on moving water around in the cells to start riprap work. Most work should be completed by the end of October, weather permitting. The nearly $6 million project will upsize the sanitary sewer lines that convey water from the aeration pond to the lagoon cells. Under peak flow conditions, the current pipes aren’t large enough. The project is expected to be finished by end of 2018. The general contractor is Wagner Construction.
