Construction Season Stretching Into Fall

Posted: Updated:

Winter is inching closer by the day, placing the city's current road construction projects under a crunch for completion.

City officials report construction on 13th street will proceed in to next year.

Plans are underway to make key areas such as intersections and driveways accessible during the winter.

Detours are also still in effect for the sixth street underpass as crews continue to work.

The city hopes to have the area open for traffic by the winter time, however, Minot City Traffic Engineer, Stephanie Frizzo,() says the continuation of construction projects depends on the winter weather.

(Stephanie Frizzo, City of Minot Traffic Engineer)"In this city, a lot of people are trying to push to complete projects whether they're city projects, state projects or private projects to wrap up before the winter months, so it's a critical time right now so the next couple of weeks will be a press to get a lot of work completed."

The city already has its eye on next year's construction season.

The 37th Avenue reconstruction project is in its design phase.

The project will reconstruct that street and transform it into a three-lane roadway with east and westbound lanes and a through-way left turn lane.

Reconstruction will start next Spring.

(Stephanie Frizzo, City of Minot Traffic Engineer)"Thirteenth street is under reconstruction right now tot he south. It'll go all the way down to 37th. So, there will be a nice new urbanized road section there. Basically, when you get to 37th, you shoot across and go to Broadway. So, it will be a lot better conditions to make those maneuvers."

The North Broadway project is also projected to start next year.
