It was the largest infrastructure project in Minot’s history.
The project was a rebuilding of Minot's downtown. It was one part of the city's recovery from the devastating 2012 flood. Minot mayor Chuck Barney said 26 city blocks of downtown Minot were affected by the project.
"We replaced or upgraded all that was in the public right-of-way," Barney said at a ceremonial ribbon cutting for the project's completion. "The water mains, the sewer mains, the storm sewer pipelines, roads, sidewalks, benches, trees, streetlights -- everything."
