Phase MI-2 Napa Valley Currently In Construction
-- UPDATE --
December 13, 2019
As work continues on Phases MI-2 and MI-3 of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project (MREFPP), 16th Street SW is now open to four lanes of traffic. A closure is still in place along 7th Ave SW off of 16th St for several more weeks.
Work is continuing on the relocation of utilities within that area of the project.
Safety is always a priority so please be vigilant near the construction zone.
Construction completion on this phase is slated for 2020.
Phase MI-2 Napa Valley
urban flood control
The Napa Valley segment of the project begins at the west edge of Minot at the Highway 83 Bypass and ends at 16th Street SW across the Mouse River from the Minot Water Treatment Plant, on the north side of the Mouse River. The features through this segment of the project are predominantly earthen levees with an average height of approximately 14 feet. The existing levees through this stretch have an average height of approximately 7 feet. The Napa Valley segment includes a transportation closure structure at 16th Street SW which will consist of a removable barrier floodwall that is erected only during large flood events. The roadway will remain open to traffic during normal periods. The Napa Valley segment of the project will also include a storm water pump station in the vicinity of 7th Ave and 20th Street SW, approximately 2 blocks south of Perkett Elementary School.
The Napa Valley levee will impact the Souris Valley and Wee Links Golf Courses. Impacts to these courses will be mitigated by modifying the course layout and moving or reconstructing the features that are impacted. The Dakota Bark Park, located on the west end of the project, will also be impacted by the new levee. The impacts will be mitigated to this park by re-configuring the existing fences and shelter in locations close to the existing park.
The access to Wee Links will change due to the project. The new access will be off of 16th Street in the vicinity of Forest Road. The new access and parking lot for Wee Links will also serve area fishermen, as the existing fishing pier near the Minot Water Treatment Plant will be relocated to the north side of the river, adjacent to the new Wee Links parking lot.
Construction is underway and is expected to be completed in 2020.
