Minot, N.D. – The closure of six blocks of Fourth Avenue for flood protection construction is scheduled to start the week of April 30 and will remain closed for the majority of 2018. Park Construction, as part of the Phase MI-1 Fourth Avenue flood protection project, will be installing a temporary storm sewer bypass across Fourth Avenue as well as permanent underground utility infrastructure during this closure. The closure will start at Broadway and go east until Fifth Street NE. A detour route will be clearly marked that includes using Sixth Avenue NE/NW for through traffic. Local traffic access to Sammy’s Pizza will be open.
The opening of the temporary closure of Third/Fourth Avenue, just west of the Broadway intersection will occur late on Friday, April 27.
The Phase MI-1 Fourth Avenue enhanced flood protection project is a six block stretch of levees, floodwalls, a new sanitary lift station, and a major storm water pump station from just west of Broadway to the east side of Third Street NE. Construction on this phase is scheduled to be complete in late 2020.
