Starting today (June 2), there will be a change in closed roads in Valley City for the permanent flood protection project, which is currently working on College Street and Fourth Street Southwest.

The entrance to City Park at Fourth Street will be closed. Both bridges at Fourth Street (east and west of the park entrance) will be closed to traffic. All public access to City Park will be across the footbridge from the north.

College Street and Second Avenue Southwest, in front of the Foss Music Hall, will remain closed for construction. Fourth Street and Eighth Avenue Southwest to Second Avenue Southwest will be open to local traffic only.

Viking Drive has been re-opened to traffic.

Pedestrian traffic will not be able to cross the East City Park Bridge or West City Park Bridge. Pedestrians are encouraged to detour using Main Street, through VCSU or the Viking Bridge.

Updated maps for all road closures will be posted on the City of Valley City’s website ( when they are taking affect. For questions regarding the project, contact KLJ at (701) 845-4980.
