House Demolition Complete in Oakcreek

Posted: Updated:

Demolition began last Thursday on eight homes in the Oakcreek subdivision that sit directly on the infamous drain 27. In an effort to protect the entire subdivision The City of Fargo offered to buy out the homes and put in permanent flood protection.

Four homeowners however chose not to sell their houses and wait out the flood. City engineers will now work with those four homeowners to put trap or sandbags on their property that will attach to a permanent clay dike.

City engineers will begin the next phase of the project as crews work to fill in those eight foundations and level the ground in preparation for clay dike construction. Clay will be brought in from the 64th Avenue South borrow pit and could begin later today or tomorrow.
