First open house on First Avenue North reconstruction project is March 26

March 20, 2024

The City is holding its first open house for the First Avenue North reconstruction project. The open house is part of a series of engagement events that seek community input to re-envision the popular corridor.

The City is reconstructing a half mile of First Avenue North, between Washington Avenue and Eighth Street North. This street has between 3,000 and 20,000 people walking along it every day, along with 400 to 600 cyclists and 10,000 to 30,000 vehicles. The project is intended to improve how everyone uses this corridor.

Everyone is invited to stop by the family-friendly event to meet the project team, talk about the project and share favorite memories of spending time on this downtown corridor. This input will help the City design a street that better serves everyone’s needs and desires.
