Bryant Ave S Street Reconstruction
The Minneapolis Public Works Department plans to reconstruct 2.5 miles of Bryant Ave S, from Lake Street to 50th St W in 2022. The project will replace 60-year-old infrastructure and provides the opportunity to enhance the safety and comfort for people who live, work, and play on Bryant Ave S.

How we are currently engaging with stakeholders
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Public Works staff are currently not hosting or attending in-person meetings. Through at least May 1st, 2020, all project outreach and discussions will occur online and over the phone.
The Bryant Ave S project is currently programmed to begin construction in 2022; however, as a part of the upcoming Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) cycle, Public Works will recommend moving the project forward in the CIP so the reconstruction can begin in 2022. The conceptual design phase of the project, including stakeholder engagement, will begin in early 2020.
In 2018, Public Works completed a study that documents existing conditions, planning guidance, issues, and opportunities along Bryant Ave S in advance of the planned reconstruction project. See the Bryant Ave S Existing Conditions Study (PDF).
Data in the document is currently being reviewed, updated, and augmented as part of the conceptual design phase of the project.
