Cramer Celebrates Completion of Infrastructure Improvements Project in Minot
MINOT, N.D. – Congressman Kevin Cramer celebrated the completion of new infrastructure today upgrading Minot's underground and aboveground infrastructure.
The three-year City of Minot Downtown Infrastructure Improvements Project, led by Wagner Construction, was finished a month ahead of schedule, and will make sure the Magic City has adequate public infrastructure for decades to come.
“It’s remarkable to see the City of Minot come together after the disastrous 2011 flood, and complete the project ahead of schedule,” said Cramer. “Minot has always been a resilient city and the recent completion of this infrastructure project ensures the Magic City has a prosperous future.”
Funding for the project came from a number of programs. The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarded $18 million in disaster recovery grant funding, which was matched by roughly $4.9 million in funds from a street light assessment and storm sewer assessment district, $5 million from Community Development Block Grants, and $1.7 million was awarded from the State of North Dakota.
Through his support of the House Fiscal Year 2018 Appropriations bills, Cramer is working to protect programs that benefit our communities while also ensuring our federal government is practicing fiscal responsibility.
