List of City Construction Projects for 9/15 - 9/28/14

Please note that these are the major projects within and under control of the City of Minot. Projects being completed by NDDOT, Ward County and private contractors may not be on this list. All Dates are estimates and some projects are scheduled to go beyond the date of this report. In addition, there will always be several small pockets of construction and maintenance throughout the city, so residents are urged to give themselves extra travel time during the entire construction season.

Paving contractors as well as city crews are working throughout all areas of town patching potholes and areas of broken pavement. Use caution when approaching these and any other construction projects. City sweeping crews are still in the process of street sweeping throughout the city. Use caution when approaching or passing the street sweeping equipment.

Street Sealing Project
Phase 1 work will begin on September 15th on a street sealing project in the following neighborhoods: 11th ½ Avenue SW to 16th Avenue SW between 16th Street SW and 8th Street SW. Phase 2 work will begin on September 19th for the area of 1st Street SW to 3rd Street SE between Burdick Expressway and 11th Avenue. 10th and 11th Avenues between 3rd Street SE and Hiawatha will also be done during this phase.

During the Street Sealing Project, street parking is prohibited in these areas, and vehicles may be towed. â??No Parkingâ? signs are in place or will be in place. Residents of the area will have full access, but should note that when work is taking place directly in front of driveways, they will not be able to enter or exit until the process of laying asphalt and overlay is complete. This normally takes very little time.

Traffic Signal Upgrade Project
Over the next few weeks, several intersections will be involved in a signal upgrade project. Be aware of lane closures and workers in the area. Work that requires signals to be dark will be taking place in the evening hours, so motorists are advised to use extreme caution. Stop signs will most likely be in place, but motorists are reminded that at dark intersections, state law requires all vehicles to come to a complete stop before proceeding through the intersection. . Information will be provided to media as work proceeds at specific intersections.

Work continues on the 21st Avenue NW project. During the first portion of this project, 21st Avenue NW will be closed between 16th Street NW and 11th Street NW. The intersection of 16th Street/21st Avenue NW will be closed through the week of September 15th for paving operations. It is expected that over the next two weeks, work will primarily take place between 14th and 16th Streets in order to get asphalt placed up to the 16th Street intersection. This project is for utility improvements as well as traffic control signal going in to the 21st Avenue / 16th Street Intersection.

6th Street SW near City Hall and the Public Library
6th Street SW remains closed from Central Avenue to Burdick Expressway. This area is also closed to pedestrian traffic. Final preparations are being made to sidewalks and retaining walls in the area. Information will be provided to media as the area opens to vehicle and pedestrian traffic toward the end of September.

New and gently used coat donations are accepted at the Salvation Army, 315 Western Ave. daily through September 30th. All sizes both male and female newborn to 3X are accepted. Distribution of coats is scheduled Wednesday, October 1st at the Salvation Army 10am to 3pm. Bring identification of each child with you at the time of registration. The coat program is not limited to children only. If a family member needs a coat, they can get a coat as well. We have so many people relocating to Minot from southern states and not used to our frigid temps so our numbers are increasing. Other items distributed are hats, mittens, and scarves.

"Coats for Kids" is a wonderful program. There are many children that outgrow his or her coat or simply need a new coat and are unable to purchase one. Coats for Kids can provide that coat. We wish to thank each and every one for donating coats for the Coats for Kids program.

Volunteers are needed statewide to provide free tax assistance and preparation for people with low-to-moderate income through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program. Last year, 119 North Dakota Tax-Aide volunteers helped more than 8,000 people file their federal and state tax returns at 11 locations.

Lack of experience shouldn't stop anyone from volunteering. Volunteers do not need tax preparation experience because they receive comprehensive IRS training on tax forms and software at no cost. Instead, potential volunteers should have computer skills, enjoy meeting people and working with other volunteers, and be able to commit at least four hours a week from February 1-April 15. Schedules are flexible to accommodate winter vacations and other needs.

Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. You dont need to be an AARP member or be retired to volunteer. For more information on becoming a Tax-Aide volunteer, call Doreen Riedman at AARP North Dakota toll-free at 866-554-5383, or go to www.aarp.org/taxaide.

AARP Tax-Aide, the nations largest volunteer-run tax preparation and assistance service, is offered in conjunction with the IRS.

The Minot Fire Department will begin testing fire hydrants starting on Tuesday, July 1st. The program will consist of the inspection and flowing of fire hydrants in the City of Minot. National fire standards recommend that this program be done to check for proper operations of fire hydrants along with insuring an adequate water supply to fight fires. These flow tests will be done only on Tuesday mornings (8:30am-12:00pm) from July 1 through October.

Most fire hydrants do not get used regularly. The program goals are to identify problems and have them corrected by the Water Department, ultimately saving the fire department valuable time during a fire. Some of the more common problems found have been hydrant valves that don't operate, caps that don't come off, inadequate water pressure or possible broken lines.

Why should you be notified of this program?

When fire hydrants are flowed, iron deposits in the water lines get stirred up. This can cause a brown discoloration to the water in that area. This condition is only temporary and will correct itself in a number of hours. So on Tuesdays, we recommend that you flow your cold water to determine if there is any discoloration, before using it. While the water is still safe to drink and cook with, we recommend NOT washing any white clothes on Tuesday mornings, but if you do be sure and check your water first before doing so.

What to do?

If your water is discolored, it will clear up on its own under normal usage over a period of time. Run your cold water to check to see if it's cleared up. (It is also best to limit the use of your hot water until it's clear, as this will keep the iron deposits from going into your hot water heater.)
The long-term benefits of this program for the City of Minot:

1) Knowing that your fire hydrant has been tested and is in good operational condition if the
fire department would ever need it.

2) Annual flows will reduce and ultimately remove the iron deposits in our water lines.

3) Improve the overall quality of our water system.

There will be at least three different fire crews doing these tests on Tuesday mornings, again starting in July and going until October. Because of problems they might run into while doing these tests, we may be moving to different areas of town daily. All residents in or around the testing areas should check the clarity of their water on Tuesdays prior to washing laundry.

The Minot Daily News will release the locations of the areas being flowed each week and they will also be listed on the City of Minot web site: www.minotnd.org

If you have any questions, please contact the Minot Water Department at 857-4150 or the Minot Fire Department at 857-4740.
