MINOT, N.D. - Construction on the Puppy Dog Phase 6 Sanitary Sewer Improvements project started today in Southeast Minot.
The $5.5 million project will provide sanitary sewer upgrades for residents in south Minot, replacing old sewer lines in the area. The area will get two miles of new 30-inch line and man holes. The old lines were installed in the early 70s.
"Right now the line is serving the area adequately, but we need to up size it so that we have the room for all the additional growth on the south side of Minot and the southwest side of Minot," says Dan Jonason, City of Minot Public Works Director.
A section of 55th street SE to the entrance of Highway 2 will be closed.
As the project continues west, Jonason says there will be detour routes set up and access to homes in the area. Projected is expected to be finished in September 2017.
