Members of the Souris River Joint Board and engineers from Ackerman Estvold and Bar Engineering held a public input meeting at Perkett School last night. The design work for Minot’s west-side flood protection is ~30% complete; this meeting was intended to present the progress and gather public feedback.
Here are the important points:
- This meeting was for Phase II & Phase III portions of the project which runs from east side of the 83-bypass, along the north side of Souris Valley Golf course, across 16th street, and then up to the railroad tracks just south of 2nd Ave SW.
- The engineering team is hoping to begin construction in 2017. The construction process is expected to take 2-3 construction seasons.
- The cost of the work is estimated at $43 million. It will be paid for by an allocation from the 2015 legislature and funds from Minot’s sales tax.
- Your comments on the design concept are wanted. Contribute your thoughts on this page of the Mouse River Flood Protection Plan website.
