Minot Area Chamber of Commerce recently issued the following announcement.
A section of 16th Street SW near the Minot Water Treatment Plant will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. on Tuesday May 22, as crews perform essential training and installation of road closures for flood protection.
City of Minot crews will be installing aluminum columns and stop logs that connect the flood walls on both sides of 16th street Southwest. The sidewalk openings will also be closed to pedestrians.
"This training is critical for our crews to understand how the closure process works and to prepare for how long it would take to complete in the event of an emergency," said Minot Public Works Director Dan Jonasson. "We appreciate the public being patient. We'll do our best to minimize the inconvenience."
The length of the roadway closure on 16th Street SW, from just outside of the curb on each side is 126 feet, requiring 12 posts, spaced roughly every eight feet, to connect the stop logs properly. Stop logs are also used to close the two pedestrian walkways along this portion of the floodwall.
