Construction Updates for downtown businesses

New map shows current construction zones downtown
Post Date: Jun 26 2015
With the addition of four more blocks of road construction this week, the downtown project is impacting 11 blocks downtown, primarily Central Avenue and around Minot High School-Central Campus.

With tight time frames for construction completion, contractors and sub-contractors continue to work long days and most weekends in order to minimize long-term impact and get as close as possible to contractual target dates for completion of certain areas.

“The contractor has indicated that they are likely a week or two behind where they would like to be,” said Lance Meyer, Minot city engineer. “A wide range of factors play a role in being off schedule, including some of the very heavy rain we have experienced recently in Minot. They are continuing to work as many weekends as possible in order to stay as close as possible to target dates in the contract.”


Roads currently impacted by construction include the following: Second Street SE, from Third Avenue SE to First Avenue SE; both Second Avenue SE and First Avenue SE from Third Street SE to Second Street SE; Central Avenue, from Third Street East to Broadway; and portions of First Street NE, Main Street (just north and south of Central Avenue), and First Street SW and NW.

Downtown businesses remain open and accessible during the construction. Shoppers are encouraged to seek on-street parking in locations north and south of Central Avenue, and use proper caution when accessing businesses via the provided sidewalk routes.

In order to access businesses while driving to downtown Minot, plan on driving and parking on the north side of Central Avenue for businesses north of Central, and drive and park on the south side of Central Avenue for businesses south of Central.

Construction information will be provided through the website, You can also contact the public information team for the project at 857-7205, and ask for Mark Lyman or Bryan Obenchain.
