Project Overview:

Construction activities include the removal and replacement of the existing water main, sanitary sewer, asphalt pavement, concrete curb and gutter, sidewalks, driveway aprons, and upgrades to the storm sewer system.


This project will be divided into three phases:
• Phase 1 – 7th St N from 7th Ave to 8th Ave and 8th Ave N from 7th St to Broadway
• Phase 2 – 7th St N from 8th Ave to 9th Ave and 9th Ave N from 8th St to Broadway
• Phase 3 – 7th St N from 9th Ave to 10th Ave and 10th Ave N from 7th St to Broadway
We will maintain driveway access as long as possible, but access will not be possible at all times.


Dakota Underground Co Inc.


It is anticipated that construction will begin in the spring of 2024 with all roads reopened in the fall of 2024.


The anticipated project funding will be a combination of Wastewater Utility Funds, Water Utility Funds, Infrastructure Sales Tax and Special Assessments to the benefiting properties. Assessments will be applied per City policy.


The existing water mains were installed over 100 years ago and are being replaced to minimize impacts and costs associated with breaks. The existing sanitary sewer mains were installed over 100 years ago and are showing signs of deterioration. As part of this project, we will replace the sanitary sewer pipe. The street reconstruction is necessary as the existing asphalt street section has deteriorated significantly and has exceeded its life expectancy. Reconstruction will include asphalt street paving, gravel base, curb and gutter, storm sewer inlets and leads, driveway approaches, and sidewalk replacement.
