Minot District Construction

Posted: Updated:

While a record amount will be spent on highway projects in the state this year, Department of Transportation assistant engineer Bob Allen is expecting a slower season than last in the Minot area.

$20 million will be spent on improvements within the Minot District.

Allen says the largest project in this district is a turning lane project between Burlington and Surrey which includes lane closures and reduced speeds.

A second turn lane project will be under construction in the Harvey area.

Other projects will include four paving projects in Berthold, Ryder, Turtle Lake and Bottineau to Dunseith.

Speeds will also be reduced on Highway 2 from East of Berthold to Stanley for a rumble strip maintenance project.

(Bob Allen, NDDOT Minot, Assistant District Engineer) "Last year we had significantly more than that but the concentration of the work goes to the Williston District where the oil traffic has necessitated a lot of work. The traffic, ours is a lot more than it used to be but theirs has doubled and tripled."

Allen says improvements due to a high water table in the area are slowing this year, however, the DOT has finalized a bid on a $200,000 emergency grade raise on Highway 53 near Benedict.
