The Army Corps’ St. Paul District contractor Ames Construction, Inc., is preparing to resume construction activities on the diversion inlet structure, near Horace, North Dakota, in mid-June.

The diversion inlet structure is a part of the Fargo, North Dakota/Moorhead, Minnesota, flood risk management project.

The inlet structure phase of the project includes construction of a concrete control structure with three gates that will regulate flows into the diversion channel.

Funding for this project feature was included in the Army Corps Fiscal Year 2016 and 2018 work plans.

The complete Fargo-Moorhead flood risk management project plan includes building a 30-mile earthen channel, a 12-mile long southern embankment, 19 highway bridges, four railroad bridges, three gated control structures and two aqueduct structures.

The project will provides flood risk reduction for more than 230,000 people and 70 square miles of infrastructure in the communities of Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, Horace and Harwood.

The Corps is working in partnership on this project with the cities of Fargo, North Dakota, and Moorhead, Minnesota, and the Metro Diversion Authority and in collaboration with the states of North Dakota and Minnesota.
