The businesses own the sidewalk area. There is a public easement to be able to walk there. As long as the vaults do not interfere with the public walking there, the city has no business telling the property owner much of anything. Collapses and getting sued? That's a matter for the business and it's insurance company.

I'll have to remember to give Havre a visit one of these times and check it out. That stuff fascinates me.

And as a result, I've been to nearly every county in North Dakota seeking out abandoned townsite. It's pretty amazing just how much stuff is still left in some of these uninhabited or barely inhabited places.

The Cartwright Lift Bridge and Tunnel is an interesting visit too.

What's the word on the old tunnels that supposedly live on beneath Minot? Nobody seems concerned about any of those collapsing. Such a wonderful UrbEx opportunity, yet all accounts have the entrypoints bricked up or otherwise obsecured.

It is not a lack of sense but an abundance of greed. Good rail, cars, oil pipe, safe practices and such cost a little more which cuts into profits. I say make downtown remove the vaults that are a problem.

I agree with mule....time to knock down the Stonehenge, as it is not built to today's safety standards and current building codes....a real safety hazard...

I would ALWAYS err on the side that government knows best....

It's a good thing Stonehenge is located in England and not Minot, or its existence would be threatened by Minot's 'leaders'.

"We gotta get rid of these big rocks and build some streets and housing."

Didnt use to be that you had to protect people from their own dumbness but in todays world many are short on brains..

Funny how we have to build in saftey because people are too ignorant to look out for themselves..

We pass laws to keep people safe because they don't even have enough common sense anymore to take care of themselves..
