Burleigh County Approves Flood Control Project
People living in Fox Island will have more access to their homes in the event of high water. This week, the Burleigh County Commission approved a contract with the North Dakota Water Commission to build a flood control gate along Tavis Road. The project would allow engineers to pump water under the road. The job is expected to cost about $1.5 million. Of that total, Burleigh County would pay about 20 percent.
"It`s kind of a priority for us to get that taken care of. I know it`s been a long haul for those people, and we`re going to address it," Burleigh County commissioner Jim Peluso said.
County Engineer Marcus Hall says the gate project is expected to last through the majority of next summer
