Final Concrete Pour on Major Project

Posted: Updated:

A four month project which has caused some inconvenience for many Minot drivers had the finishing touches laid down.

The final concrete pour took place today for the 6th Street road construction project in Minot.

Temporary stop signs are still needed and lighting around the intersection must be installed, but city officials hope to have the intersection functional within a few weeks.

With over 40 days of rain delay, Public Information Officer, Bob Lindee, admits there were a few days he had some concern the project would be delayed through the winter, but he is happy residents can soon get back to a normal traffic routine.

(Bob Lindee, Minot Public Information Officer) "We know the residents have been dealing with construction all over Minot, all summer long. We know that this intersection in particular has been a thorn in people's sides because it's one of the major North-South routes through Minot. It will just be nice just for the people of Minot to have this thing opened again."

Lindee says the city will not open the intersection to traffic until it is safe.

He expects flooding under the bridge until the pump house is put in during the early part of spring.
