Underpass Work To Stretch Months

Posted: Updated:

Work continues on the 6th Street underpass with plans to lower the road and reconfigure the intersection at Western Avenue.

Construction began July 18th, and workers have since gotten through the concrete to begin digging.

New fire equipment in Minot is too tall to go under the underpass, so the road is being dropped two feet.

Crews are working to replace 6th Street beginning at the intersection of Burdick and 6th Street all the way down to Central.

Additional changes made will be new sidewalks, and a new drainage system to improve stormwater issues.

The project manager says that there will be multiple benefits to the construction in the area.

(James Brewer, Project Manager) "We'll have a nice, new, concrete, decorative pavement back in there. And, the city is also working on the resolution of the flooding problems that this underpass has had. And this is going to help with that as well."

The entire project is estimated to be done in November, with small items being adjusted through the winter and spring of 2014.
