Dike construction in Oakport under way

OAKPORT TOWNSHIP, Minn. – In response to National Weather Service forecasts that the weekend could bring more moisture, the Oakport Township Board has decided to proceed with construction or completion of several temporary dikes.

That includes construction of the south portion of the Crystal Creek/

McCann’s dike, which will be extended north if necessary. Construction begins today, but township Chairman Jeff Schaumann said every effort will be made to keep Oakport Street open to two-way traffic.

Schaumann also said construction on the West and Brentwood dikes should be completed by this evening.
