Plymouth Ave N Reconstruction

The City of Minneapolis is planning to reconstruct approximately 0.5 miles of Plymouth Avenue North between Xerxes Avenue North and Penn Avenue North.  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 curb ramps, add boulevards with trees, address sidewalk obstructions, and improve the existing bicycle facility.
