Route Changes Due to Construction

Summer construction will effect four Minot City Transit routes for the months to come. 

Starting Monday, April 24th both the West and North Central routes will experience detours downtown due to the Downtown Infrastructure Project construction. Both of these routes will continue east on 2nd Ave SE past Central Campus to 3rd ST SE where the routes will then turn south onto 3rd ST SE. The routes will continue on to Burdick Expressway where they will turn west onto Burdick and proceed on to the Minot City Auditorium as normal.

Student passengers from Central Campus High School will ONLY be able to catch the West and North Central routes on the corner of 2nd Ave & 2nd ST SE as the buses travel east along 2nd Ave SE.

Passengers from Milton Young Towers will ONLY be able to catch the West, North Central, or East routes on the corner of 2nd ST SE & Burdick Expressway as the buses travel west along Burdick Expressway.


Starting Monday, May 1st the North and North Central routes will experience a detour just west of the Minot State University football field along 8th ST NW due to construction. The detour will turn right onto 11th Ave NW from 8th ST NW and continue east until it takes a left turn onto 7th ST NW. The detour will then continue north on 7th ST NW until it takes a left onto 20th Ave NW heading west. The route will then turn right back onto 8th ST NW and continue on with its normal route.

Starting Monday June 5th the East route will experience a detour and some temporary changes to the route. Due to the Burdick Expressway Reconstruction Project the East route will no longer be running on Burdick Expressway between Valley Street (near the viaduct) to 8th Ave SE (near the Capri bar) until construction is ended. Instead, as the East route heads east on Burdick it will turn right onto Valley Street. It will then continue down Valley Street before taking a left onto 8th Ave SE. The route will then follow 8th Ave SE back to Burdick Expressway before turning right onto Burdick and continuing on with its normal route to the east. On its way back west to the auditorium the East route will follow this same detour in reverse, meaning there will be NO bus access along Burdick Expressway between Valley Street and 8th Ave SE, as well as, NO service to the Elbow Park Addition area to the north of Burdick Expressway between 16th & 19th ST SE.
