Downtown East Reconstruction
In 2021, the City of Minneapolis will reconstruct 0.3 miles of multiple streets in the Downtown East area.
This project will replace aging pavement and improve the right-of-way for all users and modes of travel. The project provides an opportunity to incorporate ADA compliant pedestrian ramps, address sidewalk obstructions and sidewalk gaps, and add furnishing zones or boulevard space with street trees. The project will also evaluate options for new connections to the adjacent Hiawatha LRT Trail and 11th Avenue South bikeway.
The project includes full reconstruction of the entire right-of-way and will include new sidewalks, ADA pedestrian ramps, furnishing zones or boulevard space, pavement, curb and gutter, and utility improvements. The project will also include new signage, new pavement markings, and an evaluation of potential non-motorized connections to the adjacent Hiawatha LRT Trail and 11th Avenue South bikeway.
Approximately 0.3 miles of multiple streets in the Downtown East area:
- 10th Ave S, from Washington Ave to 3rd St S
- 12th Ave S from Washington Ave to 3rd St S
- 3rd St S from 10th Ave S to 12th Ave S
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2021. 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 public meetings will be announced here.
