Work set on Sunset Boulevard, Elk Drive

Sunset Boulevard

We’re paving Sunset Boulevard!

Oh, not that part of it, though.

And actually, we’re doing mill and overlay work on a stretch of Sunset Boulevard in northwest Minot, along with some new drainage gutters and new concrete handicapped-accessible ramps.

The work stretches from a point where 20th Street Northwest turns into Sunset Boulevard to 19th Avenue Northwest, stopping where Sunset Boulevard becomes the infamous unpaved portion of road between 19th Avenue Northwest and 21st Avenue Northwest. The unpaved portion of Sunset Boulevard will remain unpaved until the Minot City Council decides to improve the surface or development occurs in the area. 

Berg said work on Sunset Boulevard is scheduled to start as early as May 13, and potentially last until late June. 

 “There are sections that will be closed to through traffic, but it will be similar to the project we did on 8th Street Northwest last year,” said Jesse Berg, project manager for the City of Minot’s engineering department. “We know we need to maintain access for residents, and we ask that you avoid driving in the construction zone unless you need to access a property located within the traffic-controlled area.”

A similar project will start soon in southwest Minot.

Berg said work is scheduled to begin May 10 on a portion of Elk Drive, between 10th Avenue Southwest and 18th Avenue Southwest. Vehicle access onto Elk Drive from Highway 52 will be open near Evergreen Avenue and Burdick Expressway. Access to and from 18th Avenue Southwest will also remain open.

“It should be a pretty quick project,” Berg said. “Mainly we’re doing a mill and overlay there, but there’s also some curb and gutter work and a few other little items to be done.”

Elk Drive work is anticipated to be completed by May 25.
