Senator John Hoeven visits Minot to talk about flood protection


Senator John Hoeven was in Minot Thursday to discuss flood protection in the region.  

He met with officials to talk about funds he’s trying to secure for permanent protection.

The City of Minot is currently working on phases one through three. 

Work on that can be seen on both sides of the Broadway bridge. 

The City is now focusing on phases 4 and 5 also known as the Maple Diversion project. 

This project will cost about 100 Million dollars. 

City officials along with Senator Hoeven are trying to secure funding through the Army Corps of Engineers.

“What we need now is the chiefs report signature from the Army Corps of Engineers who will be here in April and after that, it comes down to getting an appropriation from Congress,” said mayor Shaun Sipma. 

Simpa says that’s the critical part in securing funding and Hoeven will play a significant role.
