Transit center project moving forward

The Minot City Council approved a project that will add a transit center to the Renaissance parking structure located just west of City Hall in downtown Minot.

Acting Public Works Director Jason Sorenson discussed several potential locations for the transit transfer facility during a presentation to Council members, listing each location’s strengths and weaknesses. Ultimately, Sorenson said the location in the parking structure was the best option for many reasons, including its location and because the City already owns the property.

Sorenson said the project is ready to go to bid, and could be completed in six months. It would include a lounge for bus drivers, a public restroom, and a waiting area for passengers.

Transit Superintendent Brian Horinka said the $500,000 cost of the project is accounted for in the 2023 budget. Roughly 80 percent or $400,000 of the cost would be covered by a state grant, with the City responsible for the remaining $100,000.

The project would require some traffic and parking revisions, including:

  • Restrict parking on the west side of 1st Street SW between Burdick Expressway West and 3rd Avenue SW
  • Restrict parking on the west side of 1st Street SW between 3rd Avenue SW and 2nd Avenue SW
  • Restrict parking on the west side of 1st Street SW for 210-feet north of 2nd Avenue SW
  • Restrict parking to transit vehicles only for the east side of 1st Street SW between 3rd Avenue SW and 2nd Avenue SW
