Project Tasks

Four specific "tasks" were necessary to complete the project.

Task 1: Completed June 2019!

Phase II of the Depot Park Project started in the Spring of 2019 with the improvements along Railway Street.

Task 2 & Task 3: Completed June 2020!

In the Fall of 2019, work resumed on Spokane Avenue and the East side of Depot Park.  Much of the work was completed in the Fall of 2019, but due to weather the project was not completed. In the Spring of 2020, work resumed to finish the project, including pouring concrete crosswalks on Railway Street, curb and concrete approaches to the parking lot north of the Library and a pavement overlay on Railway Street from Central Avenue to Baker Avenue.

Task 4: Completed June 2020!

The City issued a Certificate of Substantial Completion to Knife River for the Depot Park Phase III Project on Thursday 6/25/2020. Central Avenue has been reopened and the first Farmers Market was held on the reconstructed roadway on 6/30/2020. This phase of the project included a plaza area with a planter and raised seating wall at the southwest corner of Depot Park, a variety of landscape features, improved lighting, bicycle and pedestrian amenities, and a completely reconstructed Central Avenue from Railway Street to Depot Street. The design also incorporated removable bollards to safely close Central Avenue for events. Although a few punch list items remain, such as the installation of a bus shelter, parking signage, and some minor landscape finishes, this milestone marks the completion of the Depot Park Masterplan, which was drafted in 2012 and updated in 2017. Residents, business owners, and visitors alike will enjoy the benefits of this successfully completed plan for generations to come.
