Bids Opened for Early Phases of Minot Flood Protection [Video]

The heavy lifting on the first phases of flood protection in Minot won’t begin until next spring, but a couple of smaller projects directly related to the overall plan will get underway yet this summer.

Bids were opened Wednesday morning on the Phase MI-2A, Perkett Ditch Improvement project and a smaller project that will modify Souris Valley Golf Course to make room for expanded flood protection infrastructure. The Centennial Forest/Perkett Ditch project is a storm water detention project in NW Minot that will give us a place to put rainwater when we’re in flood protection mode.

Ryan Ackerman, the project manager for the Souris River Joint Board, oversaw the bid openings and gave a short interview on the event. You can also view a video rendering of the project. Both videos are below.

Low bid on the Perkett Ditch project was approximately $2.97 million. Low bid on the golf course work was approximately $$170,000.  Following a review of all bids, contracts are expected to be awarded at the July 5th, City Council meeting, and July 12th, SRJB meeting.
