November 10th: A public meeting was held on Monday, November 9 for the flood protection work currently under design along and near Fourth Avenue North in Minot. This meeting was a focus on the neighborhood in north Minot that will be protected by the proposed floodwalls and earthen levees.
Within the city of Minot, the Fourth Avenue Floodwall Project includes levees and floodwalls along and near Fourth Avenue Northeast/Northwest, between approximately Broadway and 3rd Street Northeast. This portion of the project would provide protection for many homes, businesses, schools and churches in northeast Minot. While it would not provide stand-alone protection, it is a critical first component to long-term protection to the flood of record and will greatly reduce required emergency measures in the event of another major flood.
