TRAFFIC CHANGES COMING We know it has to be done, but next year's first phase of a two-phase project to upgrade the Broadway viaduct will make things interesting for drivers, to say the least. The project by itself would have a great impact on traffic patterns, but next year's initial phase of work on the Broadway viaduct will be happening at the same time as work continues on the Sixth Street underpass near the Minot Municipal Library. That means two significant north-south routes through town will be diverting traffic elsewhere. The work on both projects is necessary, of course, and so dealing with lengthy traffic changes comes with the territory. And we certainly don't want either project delayed, considering the Sixth Street project has already been put off for a number of years. We're just saying that when the Broadway project starts, city officials will be encouraging drivers to use alternate routes, while already encouraging drivers to find alternate routes instead of using Sixth Street. It will be intersting, if nothing else.
