Construction projects making major progress

Broadway Bridge

Substructure work is substantially complete on the east Broadway Bridge, as Lunda Construction will be setting bearings and beams on the piers in the first part of September. The contractor is a few weeks behind their anticipated schedule due to a delay with the supply of the bearings. Lunda Construction still plans to open the bridge to the driving public in late October/early November.

East Burdick Expressway

The intersection of Burdick Expressway East and 13th Street SE, which serves as the main entrance to Roosevelt Park Zoo, reopened to vehicle traffic on Aug. 19. New concrete road and curb and gutter between 11th Street SE and 13th Street SE has been completed, with work on sidewalks on those two blocks expected to begin soon. Underground work is nearly complete between 13th Street SE and 15th Street SE, with concrete work anticipated to start on those two blocks in the next week. The temporary exit at 11th Street SE has been closed, and vehicle traffic leaving the Roosevelt Park Zoo will now exit on a service road that leads traffic through Roosevelt Park to an exit onto Central Avenue. Temporary traffic signals have been installed at the intersection of 13th Street SE and Valley Street, and at 27th Street SE and Valley Street to help manage the traffic. The project has an overall completion date of late October.

Downtown Minot Infrastructure Project

The last block of concrete work is getting placed the week of September 4, with the goal of finishing substantial completion and opening all roads/sidewalks for the Downtown Infrastructure Improvements Project by the end of September. Please check out the project website, www.downtownminotisopen.com or Facebook for the latest information on road openings and a ribbon cutting on the entire project. Thanks for your patience as this project is ahead of schedule this year!

South Hill Softball Complex fields

Work continues on the installation of artificial turf on two fields at the South Hill Softball Complex. The KC field and the Eagles field, located on the west end of the complex, will be converted to artificial turf fields. Work continues on subgrading, installing drainage pipes, and topsoil placement and conditioning on both softball fields. The project has an expected completion date of Nov. 17, and should be ready for the high school fastpitch softball season in the spring of 2018. Similar work is happening at Corbett Field, where the natural grass field will be replaced with artificial turf.
