Mouse River Plan Phase BU-1B Burlington Levee Project to Temporarily Close Cherry Street
Burlington, ND – As construction continues on City of Burlington Phase BU-1B of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project (MREFPP), contractors have scheduled a temporary road closure.
Cherry Street will be closed starting Wednesday, September 23, for approximately 3 months. The existing roadway will be removed and realigned slightly to the west to allow space for the new earthen levee to be constructed. Access will remain open on Elm, Willow and Plum Streets. The roadway rebuild is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.
Phase BU-1B Phase 1 Levee Project addresses the area south of Colton Avenue (County Road 10), and consists of the construction of an earthen levee south from Colton Avenue which will run along the south side of the Johnson Addition dead loop and then along the south side of the Willows Subdivision, drainage improvements, Cherry Street and Grace Street reconstruction, utility relocations, and the new Kittelson Pump Station.
This phase of the project is expected to be completed in September 2021.
