Three phases of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project have been approved and are proceeding through the design process. These three phases are located within the City of Minot. In addition to the Minot segments, the Souris River Joint Board is working with the rural residents to address flood protection within the rural reaches through the StARR Program along with a variety of other initiatives.
In June, the Napa Valley and Forest Road phases of the project reached a design milestone of 30% complete. The information was presented to the Souris River Joint Board, City of Minot staff and at a public meeting held on June 30. Construction is estimated to start in 2017.
The Fourth Avenue phase hit the 30% design level in November and following the presentation to the Souris River Joint Board and the City of Minot staff, a public meeting was held November 9. Construction is planned for 2017 and will likely conclude in 2019.
Current maps of the three phases are provided below.
