Construction Updates for downtown businesses

Construction Ad for Bids and new phasing released
Post Date: Oct 10 2014
Construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2015 on the City of Minot Downtown Infrastructure Improvements project, as bids for the project are being publicly advertised, starting Oct. 10.

“With this step, the project continues to move forward as the City of Minot will be opening bids for this milestone revitalization in early December,” said Dave O’Shea, project manager from Houston Engineering. “Along with the public bidding process, we have also released new phasing maps for the work as we are planning for construction in 2015, 2016 and 2017.”

In coordination with the City of Minot, scheduling for the three-phase project has been adjusted based on starting construction in spring of 2015, according to O’Shea. If all goes as planned, construction would wrap up in late 2017.

During the three construction seasons, the project will replace miles of water, sanitary sewer and storm sewer pipes, concrete paved streets, curb and gutter, sidewalks, and street lighting within roughly 26 city blocks of Downtown Minot.

Phase 1 (2015): Construction is planned in the following locations: on Central Avenue between Broadway and Third Street NE; on First Avenue SE between Main and Front Street; on Second Street SE between First and Third Avenue SE; and on Third Street SE between the Canadian Pacific railroad tracks and Third Avenue SE. There will also be some work done along Front Street, Second Avenue SE, and First Street SE.

Phase 2 (2016): Construction is planned in the following locations: on Main Street between Burdick and First Avenue NE; on First Street SE between Burdick and First Avenue SE; on First Avenue SW from Main to Broadway; and on Second Avenue between Broadway and Third Street SE. No work will be done on Main Street during the North Dakota State Fair.

Phase 3 (2017): Construction is planned in the following locations: on Third Avenue between Broadway and Third Street NE; and on First Street SW between Fifth Avenue SW and just north of Central Avenue. There will also be some work done on First Street NE, Second Street NE and Second Street SE.
