North Dakota Health and Human Services announced that its West Central Human Service Center (WCHSC) and several other offices at its Prairie Hills Plaza location at 1237 W. Divide Ave., in Bismarck, will be closed on Monday, May 15, due to water main repair work.
Other HHS offices affected by the temporary closure include Adult and Aging Services, Developmental Disabilities, Disability Determination Services and the regional Vocational Rehabilitation office.
The city of Bismarck notified HHS yesterday that repair work will be done on piping that connects the building to the main water line located off Schafer Street.
