18th Ave NE Street Reconstruction
(Johnson St NE to Stinson Blvd)
The City of Minneapolis is planning to reconstruct approximately 0.5 miles of 18th Avenue NE in the Northeast Park and Windom Park neighborhoods. The project will replace aging pavement and improve the right-of-way for all users and modes of travel. This project provides an opportunity to incorporate ADA compliant pedestrian ramps, address sidewalk obstructions and sidewalk/trail gaps, and add boulevard space with street trees. The project will connect into the recently constructed trail to west along 18th Avenue NE.
The project includes full reconstruction of the entire right-of-way and will include new sidewalks, ADA pedestrian ramps, boulevard space, pavement, curb and gutter, and utility improvements. The project will also include new signage, new pavement markings, and improve non-motorized crossings to Northeast Minneapolis’ major retail center.
Approximately 0.5 miles of 18th Avenue NE between Johnson Street NE and Stinson Parkway.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2020. During construction, residents, businesses, and visitors may expect traffic detours, noise, vibration, and dust in work areas. In addition, temporary impacts such as lane restrictions, intersection reductions, parking restrictions or revised pedestrian and bicycle routes may be expected during construction. Property access will be maintained throughout construction. Specific construction staging and traffic detour information will be posted here as the project gets closer to construction.
There will be multiple opportunities for the public to get involved throughout the project. Details on the public meetings will be announced here.
