Construction begins on US 83 West Bypass near Minot

Construction will begin Monday, April 24 on the US 83 West Bypass near Minot. The Bypass will be expanded to four-lanes from US 2 north to 4th Ave. NW with the construction of two new bridges adjacent to the existing bridges over the Souris River and the Canadian Pacific Railway in 2017.  Work on the existing roadway including the replacement of the existing bridge over the Souris River will take place in 2018.

During construction:

  • Motorists will experience only minor delays as a majority of the work will take place off the existing roadway
  • Speeds may be reduced at times
  • Flaggers may be present at times

 This is a multi-year project with a completion date in the fall of 2018.
