Phase MI-1 4th Avenue Currently In Construction
-- UPDATE --
November 11, 2020
The intersection of Fourth Avenue and Third Street Northeast is set to open to traffic Tuesday, November 10th . The traffic signal has been energized and is active and the traveling public is advised to pay attention and proceed cautiously when approaching and moving through the intersection. Final work on this portion of the project is now complete for the winter months which includes placing of temporary striping and signage. With the opening of this intersection, the temporary signal that has been in place at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and Third Street Northeast will be taken down. This work is part of the Phase MI-1 4th Avenue project which is a portion of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Plan.
A portion of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Plan, Phase MI-1 4th Avenue includes over 2,250 feet of floodwalls located between just west of Broadway and just east of Third Street NE. The project also includes earthen levees on both sides of where the Broadway Bridge connects on the north side of the river, and two removable closure structures in the flood wall. Work inside the Broadway pump station on electrical work, cleaning up, and testing, will be completed over the winter as the project is complete and ready for operations in the spring.
“The new intersection and roadway are an improvement we are happy to see completed this construction season,” said Dan Jonasson, Director Souris River Joint Board. “The floodwall, lights, and roadway all look great and really has changed the landscape of this area of Minot.”
The Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project was initiated by the Souris River Joint Board in 2011 to provide future flood protection for urban and rural residents throughout the Mouse River Basin in North Dakota. The project has now progressed several phases through design and into construction.
Construction completion on this phase is slated for early 2021.
