Work Begins On New Walking Paths

Work Begins On New Walking Paths

It is the season for road construction in North Dakota. In Stanley, the reconstruction of the water, sewer and streets in part of the original townsite has been underway since May with Wagner Construction as the contractor. That is phase one of the city’s capital improvement project. Driving in Stanley, residents may have also noticed work being done along 6th Avenue and north along Main Street/Highway 8. This project is the beginning of a new walking path that will connect parts of the city and also provide safe pathways. This project is being done in cooperation with the ND Department of Transportation as part of the NDSTREET program. Contractor for this project is Central Specialties. The project was bid by the NDDOT. Originally, the city was scheduled to pay a portion of the entire project, as well as full costs for any work being done outside of the DOT right-of-way. The contract changed in February, as the NDDOT amended it to remove the local share for eligible project costs. Those portions are being paid through federal and state dollars. The south end of the project will start near Mountrail Builders on the east side of 6th Avenue/Highway 8. It will then continue along 6th Avenue around the curve to the corner by Mountrail County Medical Center. The north end of the project will start by the campgrounds on North Main Street and then continue along the street and around Golf Drive, ending by the bypass at the intersection of Homesteader Drive in the
