Construction Projects Come with a Price

Posted: Updated:

Now that the summer months are upon us, areas of construction are hard to avoid. And those construction projects come with a price.

Bismarck street crews have been busy making repairs.

During the winter, snow plows and Mother Nature can give curbs quite a beating. Even though a homeowner isn't responsible for creating the damage, sometimes they are still required to pay for the repairs. But the city says it's doing its best to keep costs to a minimum.

"It does interrupt the property owner's life for a time. You know, what we are trying to do with curb and gutter replacement and repair is prevent situations where water is standing in the curb and gutter, because ultimately, that affects the quality of the pavement and eventually causes it to break up. So, we certainly want to minimize that when we can," says Linda Oster, Bismarck City Engineering Department.

Construction repairs cost about $30,000 per linear foot.
