Crews from Main Electric in Minot expect to finish the fourth intersection signal repair either today (July 27) or by Monday, July 30. Work on the signal at 16th Street and 4th Avenue NW is nearly complete and will mark the fourth permanently repaired flood-damaged signal in the past two weeks.
"We would urge drivers to use extra caution as they approach these signals that are being repaired and restored to their pre-flood, fully operational mode," said Stephanie Harman, traffic engineer for the City of Minot.
The scheduled signal replacement project will continue over the next six weeks at the following intersections, in approximate priority order:
- 3rd Ave. NW and 6th St. NW - 13th St. SE and Burdick Expressway - 6th St. SW and 2nd Ave. SW - 8th St. NW and University Ave. - 3rd St. SE and Central Ave. - 9th St. SE and Burdick Expressway
The North Dakota Department of Transportation in partnership with the City of Minot is responsible for the traffic signal replacement project as the damaged signals are along federal-aid roads and could not be permanently fixed using FEMA funds.
The project will also include repairing five pedestrian crossing flashers and one flashing light signal in the flood zone.
