Harwood, Hackberry and River Drive Flood Mitigation Project
The City of Fargo with the assistance from Houston Engineering has been developing a project along the river corridor from 32nd Avenue to slightly south of 40th Avenue South. The City intends to construct a permanent levee along with storm sewer improvements along large portions of this area. The storm sewer will include the combination of two existing storm sewer lift stations and additional rearyard storm sewer collection improvements. This is phase 1 for this project area with future phases of construction being dependant on the current voluntary acquisition process. Once additional homes can be purchased in sufficient quantity another project can be completed to fill in the gaps in the proposed levee alignment.
A neighborhood meeting was held June 17, 2014 to discuss the proposed project from 32nd Avenue to 40th Avenue along the Red River corridor. Neighborhood comments will be incorporated into the final design project. It is anticipated that this project will be bid in July 2014 and the construction will start in August with the final completion in the spring/summer of 2015.
