Lyndale Ave S Resurfacing

Project Type:
This is a paving resurfacing project. Resurfacing projects use a mill and overlay process.  This process will consist of removing a portion of the existing asphalt pavement surface and placing a new surface over the entire street. The purpose of the resurfacing program is to extend the life of a roadway by approximately 10 years.  Without this program, streets in the in the program would not see surface improvements for many years.

Project Limits:
The resurfacing project is located in south Minneapolis on Lyndale Ave S from 56th St W to the newer pavement south of 61st S W.  This was originally paved in 1964 and the pavement is 49 years old.  58th St W from Trunk Highway 121 to Lyndale Ave S was originally paved in 1954 and is 59 years old.

Construction Start Date:
Phase 1: Lyndale Ave S from 58th St W to south of 61st St W is scheduled for October 7th-9th. The west two thirds will be resurfaced at this time, and the east third will be left open for northbound traffic and will be done in Phase 2.  Half of 58th St will also be done at this time.

Phase 2: Lyndale Ave S from 57th to 58th St and the east third between 58th and 61st will also be done along with half of 58th St from Lyndale Ave to TH121.  This is scheduled for October 14th-16th.

Length of Construction:
Construction will last approximately one week.

Traffic Impact:
The work will be performed during full or partial road closures.  Please note that street parking will be impacted and short term intermittent access restrictions may occur.  When construction work will be done on a particular street in the project area, the street will be posted NO PARKING prior to work on that particular street.
