Phase VE-1 Velva Bridge
urban flood control
In 2012, the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project Preliminary Engineering Report was released. This document addressed flood risk reduction measures for populated areas throughout the Mouse River Basin. One recommendation within that report included the replacement of the Highway 41 bridge in Velva.
Design of the Velva Bridge project began in the fall of 2018. Initial plans for the new bridge include raising and lengthening it, in order to increase conveyance through the area.
Design is anticipated to be completed in early 2021. Construction will take place once funding has been secured.
