The three-year Downtown Minot Infrastructure project recently won its fourth major award, this time being named the Project of the Year for cities over 5,000 in population by the North Dakota American Public Works Association (NDAPWA). Of all projects built in North Dakota during the submittal timeframe, NDAPWA chose Minot’s project as the best public improvement project. The downtown project involved replacing underground water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer lines as well as concrete streets, curb and gutter, street lighting, and other aspects over a 26-block area. Minot City Engineer Lance Meyer said cities in North Dakota and consultants are asked to submit projects they feel meet the categories for project of the year. The executive committee of North Dakota APWA selects the best project from the submittals. “This is the highest award for projects selected by city official peers,” Meyer said. “A lot of people and agencies were involved making the Downtown Minot project a success, and we’re honored to have been selected as the project of the year.” It is the fourth major award won for the Downtown project. The others are the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers Outstanding Design Award, the American Council of Engineering Companies of N.D. Project of the Year, and the Ready-Mix & Concrete Products Association Gold Award for North Dakota.
