Hennepin-Lyndale Reconstruction

Project Type:
This is a roadway reconstruction project.  The project will reconstruct portions of Hennepin and Lyndale Aves including concrete paving, grading, curb and gutter, pedestrian ramps, striping, lighting and storm sewer.

Project Limits:
The Hennepin/Lyndale Avenue corridor provides an important north-south linkage for automobiles and transit service between the Minneapolis Central Business District (CBD) and the Uptown area at Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street, one of the city’s most dense housing and entertainment districts.  This project is on sections of Hennepin Ave and Lyndale Ave between Franklin Ave and Dunwoody Boulevard.  These streets were originally constructed more than 50 years ago and are in need of replacement.

Construction Start Date:
Designs are being finalied for the roadway project.  Bidding will be done this fall with construction through the 2016 construction season.  Landscaping may occur in late 2016 and early 2017.
Sewer has a companion project beginning in August 2015 along the eastern edge of the project (sanitary sewer upgrades under the Loring Bike Trail).  Construction should last about three months.
